Description: The present work is limited to those papers of Sir Joseph Banks which are held in the Mitchell and Dixson collections at the State Library of New South Wales, in Sydney, Australia. These amount to approximately 10,000 manuscript pages and include correspondence, principally letters received, but also reports, invoices and accounts, journals, plus a small quantity of maps, charts and watercolours. During the course of this Project, the papers of Sir Joseph Banks have been arranged into 96 series, mindful of Banks' original and subsequently dispersed arrangement. These series have been grouped together under nineteen section headings. The journal kept by Joseph Banks on the Endeavour (1768-1771) has been treated differently to all other documents for the purposes of this Project. A full transcription has been provided for this journal only, in addition to facsimile reproduction.
