Banks’ Florilegium is a collection of 743 copperplate engravings of plants collected by Sir Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander while they accompanied Captain Cook on his voyage around the world between 1768 and 1771. Although extensive work was done on them by Sydney Parkinson and artist-engravers hired by Banks, they were not printed in Banks’ lifetime. Between 1980 and 1990, the British Museum (Natural History) and Alecto published the first complete full colour edition of the Florilegium. On display are a few framed samples from the Hocken Pictorial Collection.
