[From the library of Sir John Burnett, with his signature on the front endpaper. A distinguished academic career and a lifelong interest in fungi, botany and nature conservation made him the ideal champion for biological recording in the UK. He held that effective nature conservation could be achieved only if good quality information about species and their habitats was accessible to all who needed it - a belief that made him perfectly suited to run the National Biodiversity Network, founded in 2000. He was convinced that academics with high administrative posts must continue with some personal research, in his case on the myxomycetes.]

Pyrethrum Flowers, Gnadinger, G.B.
79 Gnadinger, G.B. Pyrethrum Flowers
Minneapolis McLauchlin Gormley King Co. 1945 Second edition Cloth Good 
Second edition, third printing. Illustrated, large octavo, pp xvi, 380, slightly used internally, a tiny signature on the front endpaper, cloth a little rubbed and slightly worn, head and tail of spine slightly pulled. [The history of pyrethrum usually starts in 1847 with the mention of the species Chrysanthemum cinerariaefolium found growing in Dalmatia (now Croatia). Prior to that it is thought that pyrethrum passed into Europe from Persia along the silk route although details of the particular chrysanthemum flower are not known. During the latter half of the 19th century ‘Dalmatian Insect Powder’ was sold in most pharmacies throughout Europe and in 1885 dried pyrethrum flowers were exported to the USA. By 1913 some 500 tonnes were shipped to the USA but the advent of World War 1 saw this trade cease and replaced by shipments from Japan where pyrethrum had been grown since 1886. At this time the main uses for the ground pyrethrum flower was the control of body lice on humans and animals and crawling insects in the home. Early methods of extraction was, for example, by percolating the ground flowers with kerosene which was then formulated as space sprays for use against houseflies and mosquitoes. It was not until 1924 that the first glimpses of pyrethrum chemistry were revealed by Staudinger and Ruzicka who published a now classic series of papers, summarising their discoveries from 1910 onwards, indicating that the insecticidal properties were due to two esters named Pyrethrin I and Pyrethrin II. Their work was studied in the UK by F Tattersfield, working at Rothamsted Experimental Station at Harpenden, who undertake a fundamental study of pyrethrum and published a series of papers between 1924 and 1935. At the same time, in the USA, C B Gnadinger also embarked on a study of pyrethrum and published a series of papers from 1929 to 1936 culminating in the publication of the first pyrethrum book ‘Pyrethrum Flowers’ in 1933, and the second edition in 1936. Both Tattersfield and Gnadinger provided a firm scientific foundation to pyrethrum research which has continued to the present.]
