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=).

British Library, Western Manuscripts, Loan 96 RLF 1/628/23See Lucas (2013b). The item is the last entry on the folio, which consists of three letters of recommendation in support of an application to the Royal Literary Fund by James Rennie. The letters are from John Richards dated 16 December 1858, followed by one from Wilhelm Blandowski, of the same date, and then Mueller’s. Rennie had written to seek support from the fund in June 1858, and had been told to fill in a formal application form. Presumably this testimonial accompanied a form, not now present in the files. In his covering letter to the next application in 1859 (see M to Royal Literary Fund, 10 May 1859), he wrote:‘You say the gentlemen who signed my former application to you were strangers to you—Permit me to say that Dr Müller is known as a botanist all over Europe…’ (RLF 1/628/24)
