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 from Joseph Hooker JDH/2/3/1, Ada-Bar, ff. 152-3.This volume consists mainly of transcriptions, most in the form of typescript carbon copies, of Joseph Hooker's letters. There is no indication in the volume as to the date or author of the transcriptions, or the location of the originals, and the Archivist at Kew in June 2000 had no knowledge of the provenance of the volume. Folios 152-260 are letters to Sir Henry Barkly, October 1865 to November 1876, with one of 18 August 1866 (possibly an enclosure) to Charles Meller (see below) and ff. 261-3 to Lady Annie M. Barkly, July-August 1867. There are some gaps in the text and a few possible misreadings. Many letters have been annotated or asterisked in red ink or in pencil. Each letter in the Barkly series has been numbered. The subjects of the early letters are Hooker's various difficulties with the Board of Works 'under a department of Govt. already tired of scientific expenditure on Kew' (19 January 1866; f. 154), and Charles Meller's journey to, and health, conduct and position at Mauritius, where Barkly was Governor, that apparently gave cause for concern
