Details

An outstanding artist and natural historian, James Sowerby (1757–1822) was unusual in being his own researcher, writer, illustrator and publisher – and in being an artisan. This first full biography of Sowerby illuminates his contemporary world of natural scientists and is illustrated with his very fine engravings, including works from the great Flora Graeca; from Exotic Botany, which featured specimens sent from places as far-flung as Australia, Nepal and the Caribbean; and from books on fungi, fossils and minerals.
