Horsfield, an American surgeon and naturalist lived in Java for sixteen years, employed by the East India Co., where he assembled a herbarium amounting to some 2100 species. On his return to England he entrusted the cataloguing and identification of the specimens to Robert Brown, who also arranged publication. The determinations and descriptions were mostly the work of Bennett. The finely engraved 50 plates are by John Curtis and E. Weddell after Charles and John Curtis.
