Chambrey is best remembered for his efforts to complete and publish posthumously Bauhin and Cherler's Historia Plantarum Universalis (PAT-104), an abridgment of Bauhin's book.  Chabrey's own work contains illustrations and short descriptions for each of the plants covered.  Where available, plant names are given not only in Latin, but also in other languages such as German, French, and Belgium.  This work includes an appendix with added materials from each of the classes discussed in the main body of the text.  The appendix does not have as many illustrations.

Subjects: Botany--Pre-Linnean works; Botany, classification.
