[From the library of the Kew botanist Jan Gillett, with his signature. Gillett was a notable authority on East African botany. In 1928 he joined John Hutchinson, a distinguished Kew botanist, on a collecting tour in South Africa. After assisting Hutchinson at Kew for a few weeks with the Flora of West Tropical Africa he returned to South Africa in mid-1929. There, with his parents, Hutchinson and Smuts, he undertook a collecting expedition into the Rhodesias, as far north as Lake Tanganyika. The botanical results were substantial and fully described in Hutchinson's A Botanist in Southern Africa (1946). In 1946 he was appointed botanist to the Iraq Department of Agriculture. He made extensive collections in remote parts of the country which later proved of great value for work done at Kew on the Flora of Iraq.]
