COLLECTION OF 47 ORIGINAL OFFPRINTS AND PAPERS BY DR. MICHAEL PROCTOR [many Regarding bryophytes]

By Proctor, Michael C. F.

Various, 1955. A collection of 47 original offprints and papers by the late botanist and plant ecologist Michael Charles Faraday Proctor, spanning the period 1955 to 2009, titles and details listed below, all in very good condition. This collection represents a sizeable portion of Proctor's academic output. Proctor was author or joint author of around 150 research papers and books, and was regarded as one of Britain's pre-eminent plant ecologists. In 1968 he revised and updated Arthur Tansley's book 'Britain's Green Mantle'. He was a contributing author to all of the five volumes of the definitive work on British Plant Communities, edited by J.Rodwell (1991-2000), and also wrote three books in the New Naturalist Series: two on pollination, and one on the vegetation of Britain and Ireland. The papers/off-prints included in this collection are; - 1) 1955. Some chromosome counts in the European Cistaceae. Watsonia 3 (pt. 3): 154. [Offprint.] 2) 1957. Variation on Helianthemum canum (L.)

THE TEA PHYTOLOGIST Four Issues - December 1950; March 1954 ; Spring 1964, and Lent Term 1971.

By Various

Cambridge: Botany School, 1950. The Tea Phytologist, a brilliant and hilarious spoof publication produced by the Botany School, Cambridge University (Department of Plant Sciences) which parodied Arthur Tansley's New Phytologist. This small but significant collection includes four issues - December 1950 (complete with loosely inserted slip "Instructions to Reader" and tipped-in Errata); March 1954 (complete with loosely inserted advert for The Tea Phytologist printed in green ink on thick paper, of slightly different format to the publication itself) ; Spring 1964, and Lent Term 1971. These four issues with excellent provenance: - from the library of the late, eminent botanist Michael Proctor (author of over 100 papers and three New Naturalist titles) who studied at the Botany School during the early 1950's (and may have contributed to the 1950s' editions), each issue is either initialled or signed by Proctor to the top right corner of the front covers. The Tea Phytologist appeared sporadically, the first issue published in 1912 (but seemingly the magazine was founded in 1908?) and the last in 1984, other issues are 1934, 1939, 1950, 1954, 1964, 1971 and 1977. So a total of nine/ten issues. Generally in very good condition, covers lightly marked. Wonderful and scarce items, historically important, proving afterall that botanists do have a sense of humour - and a very good one at that! . First Editions. Paperback. Very Good. 4t0 (26.5 x 18 cm). Book.
