A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Coemeterium,-ii (s.n.II), abl. sg. coemeterio: a cemetery, an area for burial or entombment; burial ground, churchyard, graveyard [> Late Latin Cimiterium, coemeterium, > Gk. koimEtErion = koimeterion, bedroom, resting place; burial place (after WIII)];

Churchyard (English): an (enclosed) area around a church, often used as a burial ground.

- [moss] locis aridis, ruderosis, praesertim carbonariorum areis Koelreutera hygrometrica delectatur; quin et coemeteriorum tumuli imo humana crania ossaque nonnullis foedum domicilium praebent (Brid.), Koelreutera hygrometrica takes pleasure in dry, rubbly [i.e. full of broken stones] places, especially in areas of charcoal furnaces; or even also the tumuli of graveyards, even more the human skulls and bones provide a ghastly habitation to some.

- Londini: Impensis Henrici Faitborne, & Joannis Kersey ad insigne Rosae in Coemeterio D. Pauli (Ray), at London: at the expense of Henry Faitborne & John Kersey, at the sign of the Rose at the Cemetery of Saint Paul [i.e. St. Paul’s Churchyard].

NOTE: “The shape of St. Paul’s Churchyard has been compared to that of a bow and a string. The south side is the bow, the north the string. The booksellers overflowing from Fleet Street mustered strong here, till the Fire scared them off to Little Britain, from whence they regurgitated to the Row” (Walter Thornbury “St. Paul’s: the churchyard” in Old and New London: Volume 1. 1878)

 

A work in progress, presently with preliminary A through R, and S, and with S (in part) through Z essentially completed.
