Scientist; A. de Candolle -1841

Death notice in Gard. Chronicles;
  • Death of De Candolle. — We lament to say that our letters bring intelligence of the
    decease of this distinguished botanist and most amiable man, at Geneva, in the evening
    of September the 9th, He had long been afflicted severely with a dropsical
    complaint; and was only relieved from his sufferings at the approach of death.
    The whole botanical world may be regarded as forming the family of De Candolie,
    and by them his loss will be severely felt. Of the life of one whose labours
    are so universally known, a hurried sketch, such as our columns can alone
    admit, would be an ill compliment to the dead, and a poor satisfaction to the
    living. We shall, therefore, content ourselves with observing, that the great
    features of M. De Candolie's character were perfect uprightness of conduct and
    independence of mind in private life, and in the science to which his career
    was devoted, great learning, sagacity, industry, and good sense, with a just
    appreciation of the real value of the writings of his contemporaries. Of his
    numerous publications his Organographie and Phyxiologie Vegetable, his Theorie
    ilementaire f and his celebrated Prodromus, are doubtless the works to which posterity
    will most commonly refer. We trust that the eighth volume of the latter work is
    in so advanced a state as to enable his relatives to publish it ; but after
    that, however much there maybe to hope, there is more to fear.
