Description

Excerpt from Topographical Botany: Local and Personal Records Towards Shewing the Distribution of British Plants Traced Through the 112 Counties and Vice-Counties of England, Wales, and Scotland

IT was Mr. Watson''s intention to publish a second edition of this work, and to entirely recast it and re-write the introductory and explanatory portions. This he did not live to accomplish, but he made preparation for it by keeping an interleaved Copy of the first, edition always at hand and entering in it regularly all the records of the occurrence of plants in additional vice-counties that came to his notice. The few additions which we have made on our own responsibility may be distinguished by having the name of the personal authority placed within parentheses. Out of the nine vice-counties, for which in 1873 there were no lists for even the commonest plants, only two now remain totally unreported upon, so that in this edition all the vice-counties are dealt with in the same manner. His notes for the remodelled, introductory, and explanatory chapters are too incomplete to be used, so that we have reprinted those of the first edition, with only a few tri?ing alterations that were rendered needful by changed circum stances. His'' British Herbarium has now been brought to Kew, his European collection presented to Owen''s College, Manchester, and his small general herbarium, formed in his student days, sent to Baron Ferdinand von Mueller at Melbourne.
