Title
Introduction to botany [manuscript sketchbook] / by E. Beecroft, Lowestoft, 1823
Summary
Botanical sketchbook containing the notes and illustrations of E. Beecroft, identified in a pencil note on the title page as "Mrs. Beecroft." The text opens with a five-page and two-line guide to Linnean taxonomy copied from Priscilla Wakefield's Introduction to Botany, followed by twenty-one lines on the pleasures of nature, apparenty by Beecroft herself. The bulk of the volume is composed of a series of carefully-rendered full-page pencil and watercolor illustrations of plant specimens (28 in all), followed by manuscript identifications and descriptions. A forty-eight page alphabetical list of plants, including Latin and (when possible) English names, is at the back.
