Indigenous flowers of the Hawaiian Islands: Forty-four plates painted in water-colours and described by Mrs. Francis Sinclair, Jr.

London: Sampson, Low, Marston, Searle, and Rivington, 1885.

The first color-illustrated book on Hawaiian flora. "The following collection of flowers was made upon the islands of Kauai and Niihau, the most northern of the Hawaiian archipelago. It is not by any means a large collection, considering that the flowering plants of the islands are said by naturalists to exceed four hundred varieties. But this enumeration was made some years ago, and it is probable that many plants have become extinct since then." (preface). Digital facsimile from Biodiversity Heritage Library at this link.
