The Temple of Flora is a botanical publication by Robert John Thornton, a British physician and botanical enthusiast, that was first published in London in 1807. It is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful and important botanical works of the 19th century.

The publication features a collection of stunning color plates depicting various flowers and plants, accompanied by detailed descriptions of each species. The illustrations were created using a combination of techniques including copperplate engraving, mezzotint, and aquatint, and were hand-colored using watercolors.

One of the unique features of The Temple of Flora is that it includes illustrations of flowers depicted in their natural habitats, as well as artistic renditions of the same species in more elaborate, fanciful settings. The publication also includes poems and other literary works, which help to give the book a more artistic and romantic feel.

Despite its artistic and literary elements, The Temple of Flora was also a scientifically valuable work, featuring accurate descriptions of each species and providing insights into the botany of the time. It is considered to be one of the most important works of botanical art and illustration in the history of the field.
