In celebration of the exhibition ‘Lovely as a Tree’ at the Linnean Society (15 January to 28 June 2024), we offer this image of the Mora tree as a souvenir postcard.

Images of the Mora tree of Guiana formed part of the exhibition. A theme of the exhibition was how trees have been depicted through the history of science. It was rare that a tree was depicted in full when this image was used to describe the Mora at a meeting of the Linnean Society on 20 March 1838. At that time, depictions largely focussed solely on leaves or fruits.

Image: Mora tree (Mora excelsa) by Robert Schomburgk, included with his manuscript for ‘Description of the Mora Tree’, published in Transactions of the Linnean Society (1839).

Size: A6

Provenance: Colour Printing using eco-friendly digital toners. 100% Recycled material. Made in Britain.

Producer: The Linnean Society.
