The Linnean Society of London has published the first full biography of its founder, Sir James Edward Smith. The Lord Treasurer of Botany: Sir James Edward Smith and the Linnean Collections chronicles the life of Smith, the shy, diffident son of a Norwich textile merchant, who took a passion for botany and forged it into a highly successful career in natural history in 1790s London.
