THE TOOTHED CEANOTHE.

(CEANOTHUS DENTATUS.)

A half-hardy Evergreen Shrub, from CALIFORNIA, belonging to the Natural Order Of RHAMNADS.

Excerpt from text, which is included along with a copy of the Title Page:

During Douglas’s last journey in California, this plant was first met with but where is unknown.From specimens communicated to Drs. Torrey and Grey by the Horticultural Society, it was described by those authors. From California seeds produced for the same Society by the Collector Hartweg, it has now been raised in the Societie’s Garden, whence it had been also extensively distributed among the Fellows. The plant which produced the specimen here represented flowered in February last in Her Majesty’s Garden at Frigmore, under the care of Mr. Ingram.

Order#: PAX-04

Size: 8 ½” x 11”

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.

Price: $49.99
