Book Description

SPECIES COLLECTED AT ENDEAVOUR RIVER, AUSTRALIA, 1770

Limited to 116 impressions, this no. 2 of 3 for exhibition and numbered ‘EP 2/3’

This is one of ten prints featured in our virtual exhibition ‘Joseph Banks: A Lincolnshire Botanist in Australia’. The engravings are all of a very similar size, with platemarks of circa 457 x 305mm, and are printed on acid-free Somerset mould-made 300gsm paper manufactured by the Inveresk Paper Company. Each sheet is watermarked ‘AHE’, measures 724 x 556mm, and bears blind embossed stamps incorporating the publishers’ and printer’s chops, the copyright symbol, and date of publication; the initials of the individual printer, the plate number, and the edition number are recorded in pencil. The engravings are protected by a bifolium of acid-free Somerset mould-made 300gsm paper, cut to form a window mount on which is recorded the modern and Banksian names of the plant, the location and date of its collection and the name(s) of the artist and engraver. This print accompanied by a certificate of limitation.

Dealer Notes
250 years ago Captain James Cook and his crew – among them the Lincolnshire botanist Joseph Banks – travelled to the Pacific via Brazil, the Society Islands and New Zealand, and became the first Europeans to set foot on the eastern coast of Australia. Joseph Banks’ botanical discoveries during the journey – some 1,300 previously unknown botanical species – revolutionised European understanding of natural history.

These prints from Joseph Banks' Florilegium presented in this exhibition show the rich foliage, colourful flowers, and diverse species that Banks discovered as the Endeavour traversed the globe.
