In the early 1800s, George Sinclair, a notable English gardener to the Duke of Bedford, began planting the garden at Woburn Abbey. His 200-some plots contained various flowers, plants, grasses, and herbs which began a sort of botanical experiment for him. The discoveries that were had were considered ‘an intellectual link between biodiversity and ecosystem biology first made by Darwin.’ (Hector, Hooper). In his work ‘Hortus Gramineus Woburnensis’, Sinclair gives accounts of his botanical experiments which contains dozens of illustrations of the actual plants Sinclair grew.

 

This second edition of one of the most famous 19th-century botanical reports features 60 full-page, color engravings of various plants. Beginning with this 1825 edition, all of the illustrations were published as lithographic plates, differing from the first edition.
