O'Brien, Seamus

In the Footsteps of Augustine Henry. 2011. 500 col. col. figs. 367 p. 4to. Hardcover.
Augustine Henry is one of the most famous of the pioneering plant hunters to have travelled to China during the latter part of the 19th century, playing a key role in establishing the basis for our present knowledge of the Chinese flora. His account of the destruction of great tracts of China's forests prompted later plant hunters like E.H. Wilson. etc. to venture to China in the name of plant exploration and introduction. The book tells the fascinating story of his life and work and documents the expeditions undertaken by a dedicated team of botanists and horticulturalists in the 1990s to revisit Henry's routes, many of which were in danger of being flooded with the installation of the Three Gorges Dam across the Yangtze River.
