    About Botanical Magazine: The 'Botanical Magazine' or 'Flower-Garden Displayed' can well be called the most beautiful illustrated garden magazine ever. It has been published since 1787 and thus is the oldest botanical journal. What earned the 'Botanical Magazine' particular renown was the fact that botanic illustrations were made by acclaimed graphic artist. The first issue was published by William Curtis in 1787 as an illustrated garden- and botany journal. All illustrations in these early editions are hand-colored coppers engravings, mostly made by Sydenham Edwards and James Sowerby.

    About W. Curtis [William Curtis (1746-1799)]: The official botanic author abbreviation of the renowned English botanist, pharmacist and entomologist William Curtis, is 'Curtis'. He was director of the Chelsea Physic Garden and founded botanic gardens in Bermondsey in 1771, as well as in Lambeth and Brompton in 1789. In 1787 Curtis started the 'Botanical Magazine' and remained its publisher up until his death.
