Loddiges, Joachim Conrad

Loddiges, Joachim Conrad (1738–1826). Hackney- (London)-based nurseryman from Hanover, who introduced many unfamiliar plants to England. His son, George (1786–1846) published The Botanical Cabinet (1817–34), with many fine plates of botanical specimens produced in conjunction with George Cooke (1781–1834). George Loddiges (possibly as-sisted by Cooke's son, Edward William Cooke (1811–80) ), created the famous arboretum at Abney Park Cemetery (1840), Stoke Newing-ton, and planted there some 2,500 varieties of trees and shrubs. Loudon approved, and called it ‘the most highly ornamental ceme-tery’ near London, where trees and shrubs were labelled for the enlightenment of all who walked there. Thus Abney Park was the first Victorian garden-cemetery that can really be called by the name, and was intended to instruct the populace.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
