1806-40 One of the very few original copies in existence. This magnificent Publication was defrayed from funds bequeathed for the purpose by Dr. Sibthorp, aided by the subscriptions of about thirty subscribers. As the printing and colouring of each volume cost considerably more than the price charged, only fifty copies were worked off for the original subscribers, who gradually diminished until of the last three volumes only twenty-eight copies were coloured. THE ORIGINAL cost or EACH COPY WAS £250. 6252 SIBTHORP'S FLORA GRÆCA, the re-issue, 10 vols. folio, WITH 966 COLOURED

PLATES, hf. bd. morocco, £55.

This grand and magnificent work is universally allowed to be one of the most important contributions to Botanical science ever published in any country. The expenses of producing it, UPWARDS OF THIRTY THOUSAND POUNDS, were defrayed from the proceeds of an estate left by Dr. Sibthorp for that purpose ; and as only 30 complete copies were sold, every one of them cost the estate upwards of a THOUSAND POUNDS. 5253 SIBTHORP (J.)

“ Dr. Wallicb was born a Dane, and served in early life in the Danish settlement of Serampore in India, until that place fell into the power of England. Like many other Danish officers there taken, he was permitted to enter our service, and in time rose to occupy the first botanical post in India—the superintendency of the Botanical Garden of Calcutta. In 1820 he began, in conjunction with Dr. Cary, to publish the · Flora Indica.' He afterwards issued the • Tentamen Floræ Nepalensis.' His great work, ' Plantæ Asiaticæ Rariores," was published after his return to Europe, in three folio volumes, each containing 100 coloured plates. Dr. Wallich died at his house in Gower Street, on the 28th of April, in his 68th year.”—Athenæum, May 6, 1854. 5325
