Samuel Dale

(1659-1739) Samuel Dale was a very early English botanist remembered for his carefully studied works such as Pharmacologia, seu manuductio ad materiam medicam written in 1693 which contained the descriptions of many plants and their medicinal uses. He was taught by the noted naturalist John Ray and contributed significantly Ray's early botanical works such as the Synopsis methodica stirpium Britannicarum and later, Historia.
