Video: Joseph Banks Florilegium
by Anke Timmermann

Join Type & Forme’s Dr Anke Timmermann FLS to explore how Joseph Banks and his associates gathered, processed, described, and drew plants from around the world on the Endeavour voyage of 1768-1771.

This is the first part of a two part video created by Type & Forme as part of their 'Banks Month' celebrations. 

All engravings from the videos are featured  in Type & Forme's virtual exhibition, Joseph Banks: A Lincolnshire Botanist in Australia.
