Illustrated with 20 hand-colored plates, Conversations on Botany is composed as a series of conversations between a mother and son about the principles of the Linnaean system of classification and elements of useful botany. Originally attributed to Jane Marcet, the volume is now recognized as co-authored by Irish sisters Elizabeth and Sarah Mary Fitton and is credited with furthering women’s interest in botany.
