Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.9679

Scope and Contents

Translation of Focke's work, which was originally published by the Bremen Society of Natural History in 1877. Pasted into the back of the volume is a letter from Charles Bailey to Prof. C. C. Babington, discussing how he had the work translated, and copies of that translation made. This notes that he requested a 'literal translation', without any 'attempt to polish up the sentences so that they may read better'.
