During the early 1780s Smith studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh where he also studied chemistry under Joseph Black and natural history under John Walker. In 1783, he moved to London and continued his study of botany and natural history. Smith was a friend of Sir Joseph Banks which led to his acquisition of the entire collection of books, manuscripts and specimens of the Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus, just before Smith became a fellow of the Royal Society in 1786. He founded the Linnean Society of London in 1788, of which he was President until his death. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item.
