Sixteen Steel Engravings. And Corresponding Biographies from: 

LA BELGIQUE HORTICOLE ANNALES D'HORTICULTURE BELGE ET ÉTAGÈRE Belgium 1862-1884 




The Ending of the nineteenth century produced magnificent publications brought about through the impetus of botanical exploration, which reached its peak just before the turn of the century. The body of art and science were tightly interwoven. It was a time when the natural sciences spawned the most artful expression of the printer's craft ever achieved.

During the 19th century Belgium became the center of flower and fruit cultivation on the European continent and a number of important publications were produced. LA BELGIQUE HORTICOLE began publication in 1851 and captured beautifully colored botanical chromolithographs. Each annual edition contained a steel engraving along with a biography of a prominent naturalist, horticulturist, botanical artist, physician, or scientist. Ghent (Gand) was the center of Horticulture and market gardening. It is one of Belgium's oldest cities and the historic capital of Flanders. Sixteen of these steel engravings along with their corresponding biographies are offered here.

These attractive original (not reproduction prints) are from Belgique Horticole spanning the years from 1862-1884. These stunning full-paged Steel engravings measure 6 ½" x 9 ½". The ORIGINAL DESCRIPTIVE BIOGRAPHICAL TEXT (in French) is included. Please click on each individual image to enlarge.
