Published in London from 1790 – 1813, this monumental twenty-four volume compendium was celebrated by seventeenth and eighteenth century naturalists around the globe. Author, George Shaw, provided and edited the details for over 1000 species, and Frederick P. Nodder, a ‘botanical painter to her Majesty,’ and his son Richard, supplied, engraved and published the 1064 beautiful plates.
