The plant hunters, being an examination of collecting, with an account of the careers & the methods of a number of those who have searched the world for wild plants by Michael Sidney Tyler-Whittle( Book )

35 editions published between 1970 and 1997 in 4 languages and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Queen Hatshepsut's journey to the land of Punt in 1482 B.C. to modern botanical expeditions, here is a vivid account of botanists, their travels, and the interesting, valuable specimens they brought back to their gardens and laboratories. Mr. Whittle first surveys the history of collecting prior to the time of Nathaniel Ward, the inventor of the portable greenhouse, then explains the scientific techniques of plant hunting developed by Ward. And, finally, he tells of the "Scramble for Green Treasure" to the far corners of the earth that followed in Ward's wake and he explores the gradual development of the methods botanists are using now
The last Kaiser : a biography of Wilhelm II, German Emperor and King of Prussia by Michael Sidney Tyler-Whittle( Book )

4 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wilhelm II or William II (German: Friedrich Wilhelm Viktor Albrecht; English: Frederick William Victor Albert) (27 January 1859 ? 4 June 1941) was the last German Emperor (Kaiser) and King of Prussia, ruling the German Empire and the Kingdom of Prussia from 15 June 1888 to 9 November 1918. He was a grandson of the British Queen Victoria and related to many monarchs and princes of Europe. Crowned in 1888, he dismissed the Chancellor, Otto von Bismarck, in 1890 and launched Germany on a bellicose "New Course" in foreign affairs that culminated in his support for Austria-Hungary in the crisis of July 1914 that led to World War I. Bombastic and impetuous, he sometimes made tactless pronouncements on sensitive topics without consulting his ministers, culminating in a disastrous Daily Telegraph interview that cost him most of his power in 1908. His generals dictated policy during World War I with little regard for the civilian government. An ineffective war leader, he lost the support of the army, abdicated in November 1918, and fled to exile in the Netherlands."--Wikipedia
