Patrick Neill's copy of George Don's "A Catalogue of a few of the Rarest and Latest Introduced Plants, cultivated for sale at Don's Botanic Garden and Nursery, Forfar", 1813.

Scope and Content

Catalogue includes greenhouse plants, shrubs and herbaceous plants, is 17 pages longs and contains the following quote from Don at the end: "this catalogue contains but a small proportion of my Herbaceous Collection; which is equaled by few in Britain, and surpassed by none perhaps but the Cambridge one. I have also upwards of three hundred species of Grasses." Front cover slightly annotated by Patrick Neill.

Custodial History

Catalogue was owned by Patrick Neill and has come into the possession of Isaac Bayley Balfour - it is possible that it was given to the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh at some point.
