A number of the illustrations by John Curtis (1791-1862) in the Lindley Library are the originals commissioned for Curtis's Botanical Magazine, although some of these were never published. He became the principle artist to the Botanical Magazine in 1818. It was a coincidence that he contributed to a journal bearing the same name. He also published a number of works in his own right.
