The lord treasurer of botany : Sir James Edward Smith and the Linnaean collections by Tom Kennett( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Lord Treasurer of Botany, discover how James Edward Smith, the shy, diffident son of a Norwich textile merchant, took a passion for botany and forged it into a highly successful career in natural history in 1790s London, in the process becoming a focal point for the study of botany and natural history in Great Britain, Europe and beyond. In this first complete biography, archivist Tom Kennett uses Smith's letters, publications, manuscripts and travel diary to give an honest portrayal of Smith, from his unrealised medical career to his brushes with royalty, and his close allegiances and rivalries with other leading naturalists. Personal accounts, rich in detail, help paint a vivid picture of the social structures of the time, outlining epoch-making events like the French Revolution, and foretelling the rise of the professional scientist. Find out about how Smith went on to establish the Linnean Society of London, currently the oldest biological society in the world, and how it became central to scientific study in the late 18th and 19th century." --Publisher's description
