TITLE/CAPTION/BRIEF DETAILS: FLOWERS Edwards 1815: 70. Japenese Honeysuckle. From Japan and China Sydenham Teast EDWARDS (1768 8 February 1819) was a natural history illustrator. Edwards was born in 1768 in Usk, Monmouthshire, the son of Lloyd Pittell Edwards, a schoolmaster and organist, and his wife, Mary Reese, who had been married on 26 September 1765 at Llantilio Crossenny Church and where Sydenham was christened in 1768. Mary Reese was a sister of the Rev. William Reece, the curate of Llantilio Crossenny who had married Ann Mackafee. Their son, Richard Reece was an eminent physician and wrote a number of works on medicine. Young Edwards had a precocious talent for draughtsmanship and when only 11 years old had copied plates from Flora Londinensis for his own enjoyment. A certain Mr. Denman, visited Abergavenny in 1779 and saw some of Edwards' work. Denman, being a friend of William Curtis, the founder of the Curtiss Botanical Magazine , spoke to Curtis about the boy. Curtis proceeded to have Edwards trained in both botany and botanical illustration. Edwards established the Botanical Register under his own editorship in 1815 after a disagreement with John Sims, who had succeeded William Curtis. WITH HAND COLOUR I tem
