Sir John Richardson (1787 – 1865) was a Scottish naval surgeon, naturalist and Arctic explorer.

He studied medicine at Edinburgh University, and became a surgeon in the navy in 1807. He traveled with John Franklin in search of the Northwest Passage on the Coppermine Expedition of 1819–1822. Richardson wrote the sections on geology, botany and ichthyology for the official account of the expedition. He was knighted by Queen Victoria in 1846.

Here are the beautiful original hand coloured engravings from his work published in The Museum of Natural History in 1859.
