About This Item

(2) ff., 94 pp. With 18 plates engraved by José Joaquim Marques, after James Sowerby. "Although his daily work concerned cultivated plants and vegetables, Dickson's reputation as a botanist rested on his studies of mosses, begun in 1781, and on grasses and fungi, much of his material being gathered in visits to Scotland between 1793 and 1802. In 1785 he began publication of Fasciculus plantarum cryptogamicarum Britanniae, a quarto work in four parts with 400 descriptions. However, Dickson himself was ill-educated, as his correspondence shows, and the Latin texts were prepared by John Zier, a Polish-born London apothecary. Zier died in 1796, before the last volume was completed, and Dickson was then assisted by Robert Brown. Neither man was credited in the work, and Zier's role only came to light in the 1880s with the discovery of some of his manuscripts" (Oxford DNB). This translation into Portuguese is of the first two fascicules only. A Casa Literária do Arco do Cego, 27. Innocêncio V, 56 (calling for 13 plates only). Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 898.
