In Abyssinia. Observations on Tigre


This edition relied on the cooperation and help of many individuals and institutions. The project is particularly grateful to The British Library, Publication Department, for allowing the publication of the original German texts and images and to the Map Department, for the geo-referencing of the map. Peter Barber and Kimberly Kowal from the British Library’s Map department have been particularly supportive of the project. Special thanks go also to Dr Susan Major who volunteered to geo-reference the maps. Thanks go also to the Royal Botanic Gardens and the Head of Collections, Dr Alan Paton, for allowing us to link this edition to the digitised specimens of their Schimper Herbarium.

Permission for publication has also been generously granted by descendants of G.W. Schimper, Annie and Tony Betts.
