One of the most celebrated of all British floras is Sowerby’s English botany. This periodical publication, issued in 267 numbers, and published in thirty-six volumes between 1790 and 1814, contains 2,592 beautifully coloured illustrations of plants most of which are drawn and engraved by James Sowerby. The plates are accompanied by descriptive letterpress written by the eminent botanist James Edward Smith, … (Henrey II p. 141). The plates of the second or small edition of 12 volumes are mostly restrikes of the plates of the first edition, arranged in sytematic order and including supplementary plates. Most of the plates thus bear a double enumeration and are often not so fully coloured as those of the first edition. James Sowerby was the first of several members of this family who became noted as authors and illustrators of books on natural history.
