[M & N Hanhart]
Lithograph on octagonal chine collé. Sheet: 615 x 445mm (24¼ x 17½"), very large margins. Some foxing across the sheet. Small repaired tear in the top edge.
A half length portrait of Dr. John Lindley (1799-1865), a notable botanist and orchidologist. A chance connection with Sir Joseph Banks that saw Lindley employed as an assistant in his herbarium provided the ideal beginning to what would become a successful career in botany and horticulture. Despite his family not being able to afford to send him to university, Lindley's research and publications, which he illustrated himself, earned him such high esteem that he was appointed professor of Botany at the new London University in 1829. He held this position alongside his post as the Assistant Secretary of the Royal Horticultural Society's garden. His magum opus 'The Genera and Species of Orchidaceous Plants' led to his recognition as the leading authority on the orchid plant species. This protrait is from the Ipswich Museum Portraits series published by George Ransom in 1852: the sixty portraits of distinguished men of science were commissioned to commemorate the foundation of the museum in 1846.
