Scarcely used. Original invoice from Botany School, Oxford loosely inserted. An invaluable guide to the historic and modern collections of dried plant specimens in the UK's oldest institutional herbarium. More than a simple enumeration, this work provides chapters on the makers of the herbaria (foundation donors), special collections (Bobart, Sherard, Dillenius, Dampier, Bartram) and an account of the more recent history including the addition of the Fielding collection. The second part of the book is an alphabetical index to collectors with particulars of where, when and what they collected. Since these include many non-British collectors, this is a useful adjunct to Desmond's Dictionary. The book concludes with a selection of handwriting samples. viii, 280 pp., 12 plates.
