excursions, such as "Iter Plantarum Investigationis
ergo susceptum a decem Sociis in Agrum Cantianum
anno Dom. 1629" are the 1st English local

- 1st edition of Johnson's Gerarde, who edited + greatly
enlarged the original ed. of 1597... "c marked
success, even adding a balanced + comprehensive
introduction...the Herball thuse transformed,
reached a far higher level than Gerarde's own
ed." Arber, Herbals, 134.
- This ed. was of special importance in the New World.
This work, plus the herbal knowledge of the
indigenous peoples, was the primary basis for early
American medical studies. So important was it that the
Genus Gerardia was named for Gerard + of its 30 or so
species, most are North American
