New Biography of Sir James Edward Smith

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. We are led through Smith’s purchase of the collections of Carl Linnaeus and follow his rise to fame as an instructor of botanical study in the process becoming a focal point for the study of botany and natural history in Great Britain, Europe and beyond.
