Colutea Novae Hollandiae

William Dampier A voyage to New Holland, &c. In the Year 1699, J knapton, London, 1729 edition (Table 4 figure 2) Courtesy Barr Smith Library

The first illustration of a Sturt pea was published in 1703 in William Dampier's Voyage to New Holland. The illustration is most likely to be of the specimen collected by Dampier in 1699. It was nearly 150 years later before another illustration was published. Botanic Gardens of Adelaide

Here is the text of Voyage to New Holland from Project Gutenberg

Table 4 Figure 2. Colutea Novae Hollandiae floribus amplis coccineis, umbellatim dispositis macula purpurea notatis. There being no leaves to this plant, it is hard to say what genus it properly belongs to. The flowers are very like to the Colutea Barbae Jovis folio flore coccineo Breynii; of the same scarlet colour, with a large deep purple spot in the vexillum, but much bigger, coming all from the same point after the manner of an umbel. The rudiment of the pod is very woolly, and terminates in a filament near 2 inches long.
