Webbia-Raccolta di Scritti Botanici pubicati in occasione del 50° anniversario della Morti di Fillipo Barker Webb

    Abstract

    PHILIP BARKER WEBB, in whose honour this volume has been compiled, lived in the first half of last century; during his career at Oxford he developed a taste for the classics and natural history which a substantial patrimony allowed him to cultivate. In the course of his travels he visited Spain, Portugal, the Canary Islands, and other countries, combining botany and geology with pleasure. He resided generally in Paris during the intervals between his journeys, and there he directed and carried out the work in connection with the “Phytographia Canariensis”; also he accumulated a large herbarium, including several French collections. At his death his botanical treasures were lost to France, as he bequeathed all his plants and books, together with a sum of money for their maintenance, to the Grand Duke of Tuscany.
