As official botanist on James Cook's first circumnavigation, the longest-serving president of the Royal Society, advisor to King George III, the 'father of Australia,' and the man who established Kew as the world's leading botanical garden, Sir Joseph Banks was integral to the English Enlightenment. Yet he has not received the recognition that his multifarious achievements deserve. This volume reveals the true extent of Banks's contributions to science and Britain.
