Product Description

Caroline Louisa Waring Atkinson (25 February 1834 – 28 April 1872) best known as Louisa Atkinson, was an early Australian writer, botanist and illustrator.

While she was well known for her fiction during her lifetime, her long-term significance rests on her botanical work.

She is regarded as a ground-breaker for Australian women in journalism and natural science.
