It is now fifty years since Walker's 'Flora of Oxfordshire' appeared, and although this was published nearly half a century after Sibthorp's 'Flora Oxoniensis,' the additions made were not numerous, nor was plant distribution traced out with any degree of completeness. Since the time when it appeared such strides have been made in the knowledge of the structure, classification, and distribution of our wild flowers, that a general Flora of the County was much needed.
Shortly after taking up my abode in Oxford, the Ms. notes which Mr. Alfred French, an employ of the British Museum, had made with an idea of compiling a Flora of Oxfordshire came (through his premature death) into my possession. Professor Lawson decided not to go on with the work, and at the request of the Director of the Botanical Department of the British Museum I undertook to do so.
