Flora Peruviana et Chilensis. Extraordinary facsimile edition carried out in 1995 on botanical trips to the kingdoms of Peru and Chile (1777-1788), paradigm of the illustrated expedition and the first one presented with exclusively botanical objectives. They were directors of the expedition Hipólito Ruiz and José Pavón, and as cartoonists José Brunete and Isidro Gálvez. The group was joined by the French botanist Joseph Dombey and in 1785 the cartoonist Francisco Pulgar and the botanist José Tafalla joined it.
