NOTICE SUR M. JEAN-NICOLAS CÃRÃ. ARTICLE - [Mauritius] - 1814. 
[Mauritius, 1814. 8pp. Folded sheets. Moderately foxed and lightly worn. About very good. Biographical notice extracted from the BIOGRAPHIE UNIVERSELLE ANCIENNE ET MODERNE; CÃ©rÃ© first appeared in volume seven of that work (published 1813) after his death in 1810. Jean-Nicolas CÃ©rÃ© (1737-1810) was a French botanist born on the island of Mauritius. He rose to become the director of the Royal Botanical Garden on the island in 1775, a position he maintained until his death in 1810. He was instrumental in facilitating an exchange of plants between Mauritius, the Indies, and Europe and America, specializing in spices grown in plantations on the island. Julien Coudray published a biographical notice of CÃ©rÃ© on Mauritius in 1816; while a possibility, we are unable to confirm that this is that imprint. Not recorded in OCLC. Rare.
