William Carey: Missionary and Botanist

Keith Farrer

$27.50

Paperback

The first part of this book summarises Carey's early life and the missionary enterprise, including his brilliant linguistic achievements and his deep knowledge of Indian religious literature. For these and the initiation of the Bengali renaissance he was deservedly considered to be a leading orientalist of his time.

Part II seeks to place botany in the scientific context of the time, shows how Carey's boyhood love of plants and gardens led to botany, discusses in non-technical language his place in the botany of the beginning of the nineteenth century and his important contributions to it, and his introduction to Bengal of the new technologies of the steam engine and continuous paper making.

This book adds significantly to an understanding of the whole man that was William Carey.
