Abstract

About 6th December 1888, John Buchanan, draughtsman-botanist, received a presentation copy of A Manual of the Grasses and Forage-plants Useful to New Zealand (1887) from the author Thomas Mackay. Reviews of the day stressed the handy format and low price of Mackay’s useful guide, and remarked that if not found in every home in the country, it should be in every rural library. Mackay wanted to improve the quality of colour reproductions – like the white turnip (Brassica rapa) here – and asked Buchanan for a solution.
