Already out of print, this scholarly, well-illustrated work is the definitive study of the Naturalist who’s contributions to plant and animal taxonomy have been eclipsed by the greater attention paid to Joseph Banks. Duyker “pays particular attention to Solander’s role as a naturalist on the Endeavour during the ship’s voyage along the east coast of Australia and to his pioneering contribution to the scientific study of the new continent.”
