The Ferdinand von Mueller Collection

Since 1987 more than 15,000 letters written by and to the Australian botanist and explorer Ferdinand von Mueller have been located and edited by R.W. Home, Thomas A. Darragh, A.M. Lucas, Sara Maroske, D.M. Sinkora, J.H. Voigt and Monika Wells. The letters included here are a sample of the total, and lack the apparatus files. Users who need access to the citations or illustrations associated with specific letters can contact the editors at muellercorrespondence@rbg.vic.gov.au. The full corpus will be mounted here in due course. Selected letters have been published in a print edition, Regardfully yours: selected correspondence of Ferdinand von Mueller (Bern: Peter Lang, 1998–2006. See https://www.peterlang.com/search?q1=mueller&searchBtn=).

RBG Kew, Archives. Letters to John Lindley, vol. 2 (L-Z) ff. 659-660."Folios" 659 and 660 are in fact a single folded sheet. The text of the letter begins on the front of f. 660, with postscripts continued on the back of f. 659. The front of f. 659 is occupied by the illustration shown below engraved by Frederick Grosse and signed by him ‘F. Grosse [l/c]’, which here has been reduced in size (see 59-02-05a_image01.jpg). The 'Gouty-stem tree' depicted is Adansonia gregorii, formally described by M (B57.01.01, p. 14) from specimens collected near the Victoria River during the North Australian Exploring Expedition.  The illustration is annotated (by J. Lindley?), 'see also Mitchells volumes'. Lindley named another Australian 'bottle tree', Delabchea rupestris, in Mitchell (1848), p. 154-5; it is illustrated on p.154
