Botanic Garden, Oxford, 25 April 1827. 3 pp. 7 x 4 inches, in good condition, with address panel. Charles G.B.Daubeny (1795-1867), chemist, who applied his knowledge to geological and botanical studies. At Oxford, Daubeny became a professor of chemistry, botany and rural economy. He investigated the chemical nature of mineral and thermal waters and the conservability of seeds. One of his more important papers was ‘On the Action of Light upon Plants, and of Plants upon the Atmosphere’ [1836]. Soon after the publication of Darwin’s Origin of the Species, Daubeny gave it strong support in a paper ‘On the Sexuality of Plants’ read before the British Association in 1860. He was the author of a Journal of a Tour through the United States and in Canada, made during the Years, 1837-38.
