WITH a liberality which would not find many imitators, and could not reasonably be expected to do so, Dr. Howitt several months ago forwarded to me the earlier sheets of his Flora of Nottinghamshire; giving full permission to make any use of their contents in this Supplement. Yet I must confess that some reluctance is felt to the copying of so much from an unpublished, or simultaneously published, work; even though it is little likely that the present volume can materially interfere with Dr. Howitt's Flora, though to some extent it may do so, a principal foundation of such a compilation being the selection, from local Floras, of those portions which are most interesting or useful to strangers in the districts. In my former volume, the list of Notts' plants was mainly drawn up from a printed catalogue, checked for this county by Mr. Cooper, and a large supply of specimens. It was also mentioned in the "CORRECTIONS, ETC." that a MS. Flora, which Mr. Cooper had been so kind to lend me, had come too late for use. I am sorry to say that there have been some awkward mistakes about these data, the specimens having been given to Mr. Cooper's care, by Dr. Howitt, who intended them for my use. This I was not informed of, as it seems that Mr. Cooper erroneously conceived Dr. Howitt to be unwilling to have his name mentioned as the authority for them. The checked catalogue and the MS. Flora had also been both made or drawn up partly from the MSS. of Dr. Howitt; a circumstance of which I was equally ignorant at that time. Had I been then aware that Mr. Cooper was almost a stranger in the county, and had enjoyed

[ocr errors]

few opportunities of botanizing there, it would certainly have been stated that the plants were not introduced into the list on the personal authority of that gentleman, although it was mentioned in the Introductory Observations, page 5, that "sp." only indicated a specimen to have been received from the person to whose name it was added, and not that the specimen had been in every case gathered by the individual named. Still, throughout the volumes, as often as the donor intimated that his specimens had been received from another party, the name of the latter has almost invariably been mentioned, and usually distinguished by being printed (parenthetically) in the ordinary Roman letters instead of italics, and the same course was taken with the "mss." notes. My impression was that Mr. Cooper sent the specimens to be exchanged for those of other species which were desiderata to him. In so far as the first volume of this work is concerned, the correction is to be made by a memorandum indicating that Mr. Cooper derived his specimens of the plants of the county, chiefly from Dr. Howitt. Here, however, the list is almost entirely recopied from Dr. Howitt's Flora (Nott.), that in the former volume being scarcely of any assistance to collectors, from the want of specified stations. Such stations as have not been recently verified, within the knowledge of Dr. Howitt, are distinguished by having the authority (Ordoyno or Deering) added. There is yet another circumstance connected with Mr. Cooper's Catalogue to which it is requisite particularly to allude, because it has caused the introduction of plants into the Nottinghamshire list, in my former volume, which appear to have an uncertain claim to be named as natives of the county, being wholly unnoticed by Dr. Howitt. They are the following: - Stellaria nemorum, Arenaria verna, Cerastium tetrandrum, Althea officinalis, Geranium rotundifolium, Trifolium ochroleucum, T. subterraneum, Lotus angustissimus, Scleranthus perennis, Lonicera Caprifolium, Galium pusillum, G. erectum, Senecio viscosus, Mentha viridis, M. citrata, M. gentilis, Teucrium Chamædrys, Salix arenaria, and Potamogeton rufescens. Several of these are such plants as we might have expected to find in this part of England; others are unlikely. In Mr. Cooper's MSS. Flora, before mentioned, these are all omitted, except Althea officinalis, Mentha viridis, M. citrata, Salix arenaria, and Potamogeton rufescens.
