    FITZPATRICK, THOMAS J. Rafinesque: A Sketch of His Life with Bibliography.   Revised & enlarged, with Introduction by Charles Boewe.  ISBN 087730-011-9. Weston, Mass: M & S Press, 1982. 8vo. 360 pp. Orig. cloth. $50.00


    Authoritative in every sense, Charles Boewe's enlargement of Fitzpatrick's pioneering study¬? (1911) adds more than 50 hitherto unknown Rafinesque titles, expands bibliotheca Rafinesquiana from 139 items to about 500, and gives the first complete account of unpublished Rafinesque manuscripts.¬? Often working on the American frontier, and always on the frontiers of knowledge, Rafinesque self-published numerous botanical pamphlets in small editions, which are almost impossible to obtain today.¬? Dr. Boewe ends the controversy over the magnitude of Rafinesque's publications, successfully demystifying Rafinesque's life and work.
