Excerpt from Eucalyptographia: A Descriptive Atlas of the Eucalypts of Australia and the Adjoining Islands The issue of this Atlas has been for a long time under contemplation. Indeed material for it accumulated here since 1847, when the author commenced also in reference to the Eucalypts his local Australian studies, ever since earned on as opportunities occurred. But the subject is so large and surrounded by so many perplexities, that even now he can offer his observations only fragmentary. It is acknowledged, that of all generic groups of Australian plants that of Eucalyptus is the most difficult for elaboration. This arises not only from the very large number of species, - Eucalyptus being in this respect solely surpassed by Acacia, - but also because the habitual resemblance of many specific forms is very deceptive; again, because fruits and especially flowers of these trees are not within easy reach of travelling collectors at all seasons; also further, in consequence of several species differing in regard to the persistence or secession of their bark according to geologic influences; and lastly, because the species are distributed over the whole Australian continent and Tasmania, some even extending to the Indian islands, though none occurring in New Zealand. Yet to assign to each species its proper systematic place involves the study of all allied congeners, and these are often not to be found in natural proximity, but only dispersed at wide distances in Australia. Great obstacles arose also in identifying the -earlier discovered species, their first description being generally of extreme briefness and imperfection, so much so that it was only in a few of the principal Museum-collections of Europe, where from comparison of autographically named original specimens many of our Eucalypts could be unmistakably recognized. Still already in 1855 and 1856, during Aug. Gregory's expedition, the author endeavoured to shed fuller light on the tropical Eucalypts by close observations instituted in their natural haunts, the results being rendered known in the journal of proceedings of the Linnean Society in 1858, p. 81-101. Similar and still ampler notes were extended connectedly to the extra-tropical species, both eastern and western, in 1860 (Fragm. Phytogr. Austr. ii., -32-71).

Whether small shrub-like mallees or forest giants, eucalypts are a defining feature of the Australian landscape-the essence of 'the bush'. Their striking forms and beautiful foliage and flowers have inspired a host of talented artists since first seen by the early European explorers. Eucalypt Flowers features more than 100 stunning images, drawn from the collections of the National Library of Australia. It presents some two and a half centuries of the best in eucalypt botanical illustration by 45 well-known and lesser-known artists and engravers.
