Miller, John (1715-1780)
John Miller was a German botanical artist and engraver of considerable note, who came to the attention of the naturalist, Linnaeus, through the connection of John Ellis. Miller worked mostly from specimens in the garden of John Fothergill at Upton in Essex; the botanical aspects of the plates initially being overseen by Gowan Knight, the first principal Librarian of the British Museum. The plates of this work were published both in color, and uncolored. The uncolored plates were purely for scientific purposes and were lettered, while the colored plates were not, as they were for aesthetic purposes. Miller also provided detailed engravings for other works as well, however Linnaeus is what he is most well known for.
