GULIELMA LISTER’S THESAURUS
Gulielma Lister went to High Cliff House on the cliff tops in Lyme Regis with her extended family every summer. She compiled a large scrapbook there, which she called her Thesaurus and the pages below are published here by kind permission of Lyme Regis Museum.
“A Monograph of the Mycetozoa
A Descriptive Catalogue of the Species in the Herbarium of the British Museum”
Gulielma Lister worked closely with her father on this definitive book about slime moulds. But she was also an independent researcher. After he died she published revised editions – the front page of the 2nd edition is shown below.
The original book only contained black and white line drawings, but her editions included her own wonderful coloured illustrations, some of which you can see below.
