Autograph Letter Signed, in French, 8vo, n.p., n.d.
- To the curator of a museum. "For next year, Mr. Curator will kindly have his entry on the roles of doors and windows crossed out; I cannot have the trouble?twice while the work is paid nothing. He will also kindly send me?the wild-flower herbarium?." Signed, "De Candolle.". He was the first to put forward the idea of "Nature's war", writing of plants being "at war one with another" competing for survival. Charles Darwin studied de Candolle's "natural system" of classification in 1826 at the University of Edinburgh and further developed the concept of the "the warring of the species."
