This millennium publication offers a definitive overview of the way in which Australian plants have been depicted over the past three centuries. It provides an insight into the relationship between art and science. The book covers the European discovery and exploration of Austral...ian plants, the collection and classification of plants for science, and the establishment of botanic gardens, herbaria and publications within the country. Intertwined with this is the history of the art of illustrating plants linked to the methods of reproducing those illustrations. 300 Years of Botanical Illustration is richly illustrated with more than 160 full-colour plates. Illustrations have been drawn from major herbaria and museums in both Europe and Australia. The work of all major artists and illustrators of Australian plants is represented. The book includes extensive footnotes, references, an appendix on botanical nomenclature, a glossary and a full index.
