..............................

Sydenham 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 principal illustrators were Edwards himself, M. Hart and Miss Drake and the engravers Sansom, Smith, S. Watts, White and G. Barclay.
