Comments: "Rafinesque's most important work was his Medical Flora - which became the vade-mecum of the Botanic physicians. It must be remembered that medical treatment was at that time largely based on vegetable drugs and what Rafinesque sought was to write a medical botany adapted to the needs of the American physician and pharmacist" (Lilly 137).GM 1849; Nissen 1579; Reynolds 3451; Sabin 67457; Pritzel 7401; Bernard Jaffe, Men of Science in Americapp. 104-129; Meisel, Bibliography of American Natural History: I, pp. 222-23.
