Botanical prints, Benjamin Maund
Benjamin Maund 1790-1863

Maund was a botanist, pharmacist, printer, bookseller
and fellow of the Linnean Society. In 1837 he initiated
The Botanist, a sister publication to his highly successful
Botanic Garden. It was a periodical which continued until
1842, containing very bright hand-coloured engravings of
delicate and hardy ornamental plants. He was assisted by
Rev. Henslow, Dean of Botany at Cambridge University.
Most of the illustrations were executed by women artists,
Mrs. Withers contributing 100 of the 250 plates.
