Notes on Life and Works

John Byrne Leicester Warren, Lord De Tabley, was a literary scholar, a numismatist, and a botanist. Born April 26, 1835, Warren was educated at Eton College and then at Christ Church, Oxford, from which he graduated B.A. in 1859 and MA one year later. Between 1659 and his death in 1895, Warren published a dozen volumes of poetry, the last two of which -- Poems, Dramatic and Lyrical (1893) and its second series (1895) -- enjoyed success. His greatest achievement was his The Flora of Cheshire, published only in 1899.
