TitleCorrespondence of William Swainson: L - P
AdminHistoryWilliam John Swainson (1789-1855), FLS FRS, naturalist and scientific illustrator was the oldest son of John Timothy Swainson, a founder Fellow of the Linnean Society. William travelled to Sicily, Malta, Greece and mainland Italy where he collected large numbers of specimens. In 1815, he brought his specimen collection to England and became a Fellow of the Linnean Society. Swainson travelled to Brazil with Koster, 1816-1818, and amassed another collection of birds. His published works include Zoological Illustrations (1820-3), eleven volumes in Lardner's Cabinet Cyclopaediam and three volumes in Sir William Jardine's Naturalist's Library. He adopted a quinary system based on the circular system of William Sharp MacLeay [also spelt McLeay or M'Leay]. In 1837 he emigrated to New Zealand and died there.
