Ray Desmond.

A very comprehensive account of over two centuries of the development of the landscape, the buildings and the scientific endeavour at Kew. Many of the people involved, including Sir Joseph Banks, Sir William Hooker and Sir Joseph Hooker, find their place in this history that also includes much about the role of Kew in the development of the botanical resources of the empire and the commonwealth. This superior book makes extensive use of archives in many repositories to trace not only the history of Kew, but also the research activities which support the primary scientific objectives of modern Kew. Illustrated. A large heavy book.

The Harvill Press with the Royal Botanic Gardens, London, 1995.
