This was at a time when women typically had little recourse to science, or contact with men outside their circle of friends, making Muellers network of ladies quite extraordinary.

Collecting Ladies profiles 14 of Muellers coterie of women collectors. Included are Fanny Charsley, Louisa Atkinson, Annie Walker and Ellis Rowan for whom Mueller made time to assist in pursuit of their own passions. He identified the plants they painted and provided letters of introduction to publishers and scientists. Together, these ladies produced some of the most beautiful books and botanical art to come out of Australia in the nineteenth century, covering all the Australian colonies.
