Frederick Polydore Nodder (1751 - 1800)

Nodder was an English natural history artist of plants, animals and fauna. He was botanical artist to Queen Charlotte and also worked for Joseph Banks on the monumental publication of the botanical specimens collected on James Cook's first voyage. Known as Banks' Florilegium, it was never printed during Bank's lifetime.
