Product Description:
To wander through the Marianne North gallery at Kew Gardens is to visit the world. The gallery’s dense display of botanical paintings are arranged geographically, allowing viewers to wander from pole to pole by examining the diverse plants that cover the globe. The paintings also hint at the story of their remarkable creator, Marianne North. Born in England in 1830, North refused to be limited to the domestic spaces to which Victorian women were so often confined. Rather, her travels took her to Ceylon, Japan, and Brazil, and she documented the plants she encountered along the way. Her detailed renderings of plants that few were able to see in person provided critical information for the growing science of botany, and many now bear her name as a tribute to her intrepid discoveries. What’s more, the paintings she made are a colorful record of the beauty that covers the earth in its diverse plants.

For the first time, this collection is now accessible to a wide public in book form. All the paintings that hang in the gallery—more than eight hundred in total—are included in this spectacular book. Organized geographically to correspond with the collection’s representation at Kew, this book allows us all to relive North’s remarkable travels and thrilling discoveries, relishing the world’s lush and diverse plants.

Product Description:
In 1837, Daguerre developed his eponymous process, opening the doors to modern photography. Around the same time, the once-neglected Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, found itself the focus of renewed interest and rapid expansion. The renaissance at Kew and revolution in photography are inextricably linked, as professional photographers and casual tourists alike have been capturing pieces of Kew’s history for more than one hundred years, marking its development one frame at a time. The Story of Kew Gardens in Photographs brings together two hundred and fifty of those photographs to tell the tale of these magnificent gardens.

The Story of Kew Gardens in Photographs covers the period from 1844 to the 1970s, ending as another advance, color photography, was taking hold. Featuring many rarely seen photographs, the collection provides a fascinating look at the botanical and social history of the gardens. The black-and-white images show a remarkable transformation in the growth and expansion of the gardens. The photographs also illustrate the importance of plants in the British Empire and how Kew became one of the most important botanical institutions in the world. This engrossing book provides a glimpse of British history from the days of vacationing royalty to the great Victorian plant hunters, through two world wars and millions of visitors.
