William Curtis's Botanical Magazine was first published in February 1787 and Curtis himself edited the first 13 volumes. The specimens were engraved and hand-coloured by many artists such as Stella Rose Craig, John Curtis, James Sowerby, Matilda Smith and William Graves. These were copied by artists at the Derby factory and embellished by the  William Pegg and devout man and a Quaker.
