- Alexander Dixon (1836-1887), graduated in medicine at the University of Edinburgh and became Professor of Botany at the University of Dublin before being appointed to the Glasgow chair. He left Glasgow in 1879 to become Professor of Botany at the University of Edinburgh and become Regius Keeper of the Royal Botanic Garden. He was adored by his students, and took immense pains over his lectures, spending hours daily over the making of fresh drawings on the blackboard for his classes, holding that a student would copy a temporary sketch although he would not copy a permanent wall-diagram; the lecture itself was a model of scientific presentment.
Bound in black half calf and black cloth; marbed edges.
A volume of manuscript lecture notes written by Alexander Primrose, a student at Edinburgh University in 1882. With numerous small diagrams. Contemporary black half calf, labelled "Notes on Botany - Dickson II."
