THE LONG-TAILED LADY'S-SLIPPER.

(CYPRIPEDIUM CAUDATUM.)

A Greenhouse herbaceous plant, from PERU, belonging to the Natural Order of ORCHIDS.

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

This extraordinary plant was for many years known only by a few fragments preserved in Herbaria.        

At last the collector Hartweg met with it in wet, marshy places near the hamlet of Nanegal, in the  province of Quito; but he did not send it home. Subsequently, the collectors of  Messrs. Veitch, of Exeter, and of Mr. Linden, fell in with it; and to the latter is, we believe, owing its introduction to Europe in a living state.

For the opportunity of figuring it we have to acknowledge our obligations to Mrs. Lawrence, who first succeeded in bringing it into flower, and who exhibited it to the Horticultural Society in March last. Since that time a weaker specimen has blossomed with Mr. C. B. Warner

Order#: PAX-09

Size: 8 ˝” 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.
