Elizabeth Kirby (1823–1873) and Mary Kirby (1817–1893) were English successful writers and illustrators of books for children and books on natural science. Over 25 years the sisters created books including a number that popularised science. Mary is thought to be the only woman in the nineteenth century to write a book about the flora of her county. Their books were famous among upperclass Britain.
