Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Sibthorp was an English botanist. He was born in Oxford, the youngest son of Dr Humphry Sibthorp, who from 1747 to 1784 was Sherardian professor of botany at the University of Oxford. He graduated from Lincoln College, Oxford in 1777, and then studied medicine at the Universities of Edinburgh and Montpellier. In 1784 he succeeded his father to the Sherardian chair. Leaving his professional duties to a deputy, he left England for G ttingen and Vienna, in preparation for a botanical tour of Greece and Cyprus. Returning to England at the end of the following year, he took part in the foundation of the Linnean Society in 1788, and set to work on a Flora of Oxfordshire, which was published in 1794 as Flora Oxoniensis. He was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society in Mar 1788
