19(2) Huntia published

29 April 2024

We continue the celebration of 60 years of Huntia by publishing the 19(2). In this issue Sarah Benharrech translates and transcribes a Malesherbes manuscript, "Explication de quelques termes de botanique," from our Archives Collection. While Malesherbes gives an excellent lesson in botany, covering Theophrastus to Linnaeus, Benharrech does a tremendous job with the botanical history, providing biographical information for Malesherbes, context for the manuscript and a likely date for its composition. If you're ready to be part of our journal of botanical history's next 60 years, check out the topics and submission guidelines available on the Huntia page.
