John Ellis

John Ellis (FRS) was a British linen merchant and naturalist. Ellis was the first to have a published written description of the Venus flytrap and its botanical name.

Ellis specialised in the study of corals. He was elected a member of the Royal Society in 1754 and in 1767 was awarded the Copley Medal.

His 'A Natural History of Many Uncommon and Curious Zoophytes', written with Daniel Solander, was published posthumously in 1776.  He exported many seeds and native plants from North America to England and corresponded with many botanists, including Carl Linnaeus.

Here are some of his superb antique copper plate engravings for you to choose from. They have hand painted colouring.
