Scope and Content

Letter to Frederick Orpen Bower from Robert John Harvey-Gibson in which he will give 4 lectures on the history of botany to Bower's students in October. These will be entitled botany in classical times, the age of the herbalists, early pioneers and the birth of modern botany. He tells Bower to send any new diagrams he wishes to have done and any more he likes. He queries whether Bower is mistaken about residence being an issue in the awarding of DSc's from Scottish universities as he thinks the regulations do not state that it is but he tells Bower that it does not matter if he is not entitled to the DSc degree. He asks the meaning of Bower's statement that "Edinburgh still hangs in the balance".
