John Lindley is remembered primarily for his pioneering work on orchids, but he was also a scientist, author and journalist. He was instrumental in saving Kew Gardens from closure and sat on a government commission into the Irish Potato Famine. This commemorative volume includes a survey of his life and career, followed by essays on aspects of his botanical work, accounts of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Lindley Library and Lindley Medal, and colour plates that illustrate his skill as a botanical artist.
