Visitors to Chatsworth, in the summer and autumn of last

than at the exquisite beauty of the plant now represented, many large specimens
of which decorated a neighboring stove among rare Orchids of the richest hues
and most interesting forms.

Paxton produced The Magazine of Botany, and Register of
Flowering Plants. This series of magazines was published in London 1834-1849.
During the years of 1850-1852, Paxton along with John Lindley published the rare
three-volume work: PAXTON’S FLOWER GARDEN. Represented are many exotic species
especially fine Orchids. They are often compared to the early volumes of Warner
and Williams, Orchid Album. The print offered for sale here is from this first
edition, which is a completely different product to the 1882 color printed
edition frequently found. These prints were produced using a zincographic
process along with hand coloring and have the plate markings Pinx & Zinc.
Condition: Excellent Vibrant color with some very light
