Description:

Finely engraved botanical engraving by Margaret Roscoe from  Floral Illustrations of the Seasons.

Artist:

Margaret Roscoe (C1786–1840) 

Roscoe was an early 19th-century English botanical illustrator and author.

Roscoe illustrated plates in William Roscoe’s botanical work Monandrian Plants of the Order Scitamineae: Chiefly Drawn from Living Specimens in the Botanical Gardens at Liverpool. She went on to write and illustrate Floral Illustrations of the Seasons.

Roscoe died in 1840. A memorial sculpture commemorating Roscoe and her husband was undertaken by sculptor John Gibson. This monument can be seen at the Ullet Road Unitarian Church in Liverpool.[4]  The standard author abbreviation M.Roscoe is used to indicate this person as the author when citing a botanical name.
