"The first and most important botanical magazine made up of 'figures' of plants and short descriptions. Provides a storehouse of exotics, paralleling the indigenous plants …" (Hunt). "A delightful work pictorially, never excelled as a periodical, most carefully coloured and a source of lasting interest and information" (Dunthorne). Started by William Curtis in 1787 publication still continues.
