About this Item

An extremely detailed hand-colored lithograph of a native Hawaiian flower by Mrs. Francis SInclair, published in London by Sampson Low, Marston, Searle and Rivington in 1885. Overall this print measures 10.4X14.5". This print is of superior quality, and in good condition with bright crisp paper and radiant coloring. Isabella McHutcheson moved to Hawaii after her marriage in 1863 to her cousin Francis Sinclair. Their family were the first European settlers to live on the island of Ni`ihau. Isabella was the niece of Elizabeth McHutcheson Sinclair who had famously bought the island of Niihau from King Kamehameha IV for $10,000 in gold in 1864. Isabella was born in Stirling, Scotland in 1840 and from a very young age she showed a real artistic proclivity. Part of her childhood was spent in New Zealand where she first acquired an interest in botany as well. During the years that her husband Frank ran the family ranch, Isabella Sinclair occupied her time collecting botanical specimens, painting watercolor sketches of the plants, and preparing a collection that eventually became a book: "Indigenous Flowers of the Hawaiian Islands." She took a specific interest in the plant life of the Waimea and Olokele regions which she compared to the New Zealand species she was familiar with. She painted a series of watercolors and identified each specimen with its botanical name (provided by Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker), natural habitat setting, Native Hawaiian name and blossoming period. This book was the first in existence to feature color plates of Hawaiian flowers and plants. With 44 color plates in all the book was an exquisite cross section of Native plants. Some foxing/staining and creasing. Some residue from tape in margins. Bookseller Inventory # gq1312d
