WE’RE GIV­ING AWAY one copy of Joseph Banks’ Flo­ri­legium: Botan­i­cal Trea­sures from Cook’s First Voy­age. This stun­ning com­pen­dium fea­tures some of the most pre­cise ex­am­ples of botan­i­cal illustrations ever cre­ated from the col­lec­tion known as the Banks Flo­ri­legium, a set of more than 700 line etch­ings and en­grav­ings com­mis­sioned by Banks between 1772 and 1784. Joseph Banks’ Flo­ri­legium is the first time a se­lec­tion of these exquisite botan­i­cal illustrations has been avail­able in book form.
