A Memoir of the Lady Ana de Osorio, Countess of Chinchon and Vice-Queen of Peru; with a plea for the correct spelling of the Chinchona genus

Abstract

THIS work is an attractive addition to the early history of quinine and the other alkaloids derived from the same source. The general subject is full of interest to numerous classes of the community, and the importation of plants into our Indian possessions has been the subject of much attention on the part of our Government. Indeed, it was the result of the author's exertions that living specimens were obtained in this country, and by this means that India was supplied; it is therefore natural that he should take a parental interest in this matter.
