About this book

A reprint of a classical work in the Cambridge Library Collection.

This seminal publication began life as a collaborative effort between the Irish botanist William Henry Harvey (1811-66) and his German counterpart Otto Wilhelm Sonder (1812-81). Relying on many contributors of specimens and descriptions from colonial South Africa – and building on the foundations laid by Carl Peter Thunberg, whose Flora Capensis (1823) is also reissued in this series – they published the first three volumes between 1860 and 1865. These were reprinted unchanged in 1894, and from 1896 the project was supervised by William Thiselton-Dyer (1843-1928), director of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. A final supplement appeared in 1933.

Reissued now in ten parts, this significant reference work catalogues more than 11 500 species of plant found in South Africa. Containing orders of the Calyciflorae with a monopetalous corolla and an inferior ovary, Volume 3 covers Rubiaceae to Campanulaceae.
