This book is the outcome of much correspondence and research. It is a contribution to the history of botany in A merica. Until such a history is written, the facts concerning our botanists must be recorded in some permanent form. This, the present work, endeavors to do for the region comprised within a radius of sixty miles of the City of Philadelphia. If a circle of such a radius be drawn on a map, it will include the cities of Lancaster and Easton. Two considerations influenced the author in adopting this limit. (1) It is the one used by the Philadelphia Botanical Club in its herborization trips; (2) the country within that circle centralizes in Philadelphia. Every available source of information has been searched in the endeavor to obtain reliable data. The author feels the shortcomings of the book, and he hopes that the botanical public will overlook the errors considering the fragmentary character of the information available in its preparation. It does not claim to be a complete list of the botanists who lived near Philadelphia; many names which ought to have been included are probably omitted for lack of information concerning them. The author believes that the omissions are few, and that the book gives the names of the greater number of Philadelphia botanists. The names are arranged according to the dates of birth in the biographical portion of the book; according to the letters of the alphabet in the general lists.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
