Details

'Aylmer Bourke Lambert (1761-1842) was Vice President of the Linnaean Society of London for nearly 50 years. He was a friend and correspondent of Sir Joseph Banks, and took a great interest in the botanical and zoological discoveries emerging from New Holland in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, as they were transmitted back to London, whether as living or dead specimens, as seeds, or as drawings. Lambert compiled the collection from Surgeon General John White's specimens and drawings brought from Sydney to London in 1795.' Ref. State Library New South Wales. One mark at top outside the platemark.
