By: Joan B Webb
290 pages, B/w illus, maps
In this important sourcebook on the 19th century, Joan Webb has gathered information not only on the development of botany in Australia but also on the lives of the principal players, as well as the fate of their collections. Illustrating her account with portraits and maps, she covers botanical work executed in several of the colonies. Having travelled widely in Europe to examine the 'expatriate' specimens, she is able to write authoritatively on both them and the institutions housing them.
