Botanical Zanoni.


Zanoni-  Rariorum Stirpium 1742


 Giovanni Andrea Zanoni/ Giacomo Zanoni / Jacobi Zanonii "Rariorum stirpium historia : ex parte olim edita : Nunc centum plus tabulis ex commentariis auctoris ab ejusdem nepotibus ampliata / opus universum digessit, latine reddidit supplevitque Caietanus Montius ..."

Giacomo Zanoni, the most prominent botanist at the Bologna University during the XVII Century, was born in 1615 at Montecchio,  in the province Reggio Emilia. His father was an apothecary, hence it was quite natural to him to direct his skill to investigate the plants and their curative properties.  In 1642, he was appointed  the position of conservator (“Sovrintendente”) of the Botanical Garden, an office that Zanoni was to maintain during forty years, until his death in 1682.  An accurate and learned scholar, he performed some travel of botanical exploration in Italy; yet, most of the new introductions yo the Garden came from abroad, mainly from the near and far East, being sent to him by travellers, in particular catholic missionaries directed to India.  Zanoni’s masterwork is the Istoria Botanica published 1675. It is a weighty treatise illustrating a great deal of new or rare species, both native to Europe or to exotic countries: it is basically the catalogue of the plants cultivated in the Botanical Garden, all of them described in their morphological characters and pharmaceutical properties, and illustrated by original drawings taken ex vivo: the 105 excellent engravings due to Francesco Curti and to his pupil Francesco Maria Francia make the volume invaluable. The Istoria botanica was highly considered and estimated even many years after Zanoni’s death, so that Gaetano Monti, “Prefetto” (Director) of the Botanical Garden and influential botanist of the XVII Century, published in 1742 a second edition (“Jacobi Zanonii Rariorum Stirpium Historia”), augmented and translated into Latin, in order to enhance its international appeal. Linnaeus,  named after him the genus Zanonia (Cucurbitaceae), as a tribute to a predecessor deserving to be honoured.
