Edwards, Sydenham. The Botanical Register. London: James Ridgway, 1815-1847

Sydenham Teast Edwards was the son of a Welsh schoolmaster. He accompanied William Curtis on his botanical travels as an artist and worked with Curtis many years on the Botanical Magazine. Following a disagreement with Curtis in 1815 he started a rival publication, The Botanical Register illustrated with detailed hand coloured copper plate engravings. The detailed Latin scientific descriptions show that Edwards was aiming his work at an international academic audience as well as plant lovers in his own country.
