An account is given of the succulents depicted in two unpublished folio volumes of water colour paintings of plants cultivated by the Duchess of Beaufort at Badminton during the late 1600s and early 1700s. The history of the plant collections at Badminton is discussed and the succulents illustrated by the Dutch artist Kychicus and by others are identified. Many exotic species are shown to have been introduced to cultivation in Britain earlier than previously recorded.
