The "Outlines of Botany" is introductory material to Botany, which was incorporated in several 19th century floras. This transcription, covering plant morphology, plant systematics, plant anatomy and physiology and the collection of botanical specimens, was taken from J.G. Baker's Flora of Mauritius and the Seychelles, but I have seen a copy in George Bentham's Flora Australiensis, and suspect that it was present in several other floras. The index of terms, or glossary, associated with this material, has not, as yet, been transcribed.
The notation and terminology used in this work, as might be expected for a 19th century work, is not wholly current. I have not footnoted obsolete usages, or otherwise indicated them, as I have done for some other transcribed works, nor have I corrected typographical and other errors in the original (though I have probably introduced some more).
