Joseph Banks' Florilegium

Botanical Treasures from Cook's First Voyage

David Mabberley, Mel Gooding

When Joseph Banks joined Captain Cook’s first voyage round the world in 1768 he took everything he needed to document and collect a vast wealth of exotic flora, and on his return he commissioned highly detailed engravings of over 700 species. This volume presents a broad selection from his Florilegium, reproduced in colour and with botanical commentaries, historical context and notes on the printing process.
