The miscellaneous botanical works of Robert Brown : vol. II, containing III. systematic memoirs, and IV. contributions to systematic works by Robert Brown( Book )

20 editions published between 1866 and 2018 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The botanist Robert Brown (1773-1858) is regarded as one of the most significant figures in the advancement of plant science in the nineteenth century. After studying at Aberdeen and Edinburgh, he made the acquaintance of Sir Joseph Banks via William Withering, and in 1801 was appointed as naturalist on Matthew Flinders' expedition to Australia. Brown made extensive collections of animals and minerals, but his 3,400 plant specimens from Australia, Tasmania and Timor were the foundation of his work for the rest of his life, as an active member of the Linnean Society, as Banks's librarian, and as an under-librarian in the British Museum. This two-volume collection of his 'miscellaneous botanical works', edited by John J. Bennett, Brown's assistant at the British Museum, was published in 1866-7. It has not been possible to reissue the accompanying quarto volume of plates. Volume 2 contains 'Systematic Memoirs' and 'Contributions to Systematic Works'

Narrative of travels and discoveries in Northern and Central Africa : in the years 1822, 1823, and 1824 by Dixon Denham( Book )

3 editions published in 1826 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Major Dixon Denham (1786-1828) and Lieutenant Hugh Clapperton (1788-1827) were British explorers famous for their explorations in Africa. Between 1822 and 1825, they set out to investigate the lower course of the River Niger and the swamps and forests of the Guinea Coast, accompanied by the physician Dr Walter Oudney (1790-1824), who sadly died of a fever during the expedition. This important book, first published in 1826, brings together the memoirs of all three explorers to document their mission, which represented the first complete crossing of the Sahara by Europeans in recorded history. Diverse and insightful, it recounts phenomena such as the transportation of slaves from the Sudan, the salt industry in the heart of the desert, and encounters with native tribes. Providing unique insights into pre-colonial Africa, these vivid recollections remain of great interest to historians of Africa, cultural anthropologists and geographers alike

Geology and mineralogy considered with reference to natural theology by William Buckland( Book )

7 editions published between 1858 and 1869 in English and Undetermined and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Classic geological and palaeontological textbook, from William Buckland, the first professor for Geology in Oxford and this is the first American edition which had a great influence in the US! Buckland's importance lay "in helping to redefine the nature and method of a geological explanation. Buckland and other geologists wished to produce detailed explanations that would in effect constitute a geological history, period by period, of the events of a given locality. Buckland was thus one of the men, perhaps the ablest and probably the most acute, who built a typically "British" geology, based on careful local stratigraphy and local dynamic explanations but revivified by the addition of fossil evidence". - DSB II, p.567-68
