John Hill was a botanist who helped to produce the first catalogue of the plants in the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. This book contains descriptions and beautiful illustrations of exotic plants, probably those found in the gardens of Hugh Percy, Earl of Northumberland, at Sion House, which is situated directly across the river from Kew.
