ORIGINAL PRINT

 [PLATE 14.]  

THE TWO-PETALLED BEGONIA.

(BEGONIA DIPETALA.)

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

A hothouse herbaceous plant from the EAST INDIES, belonging o the order of BEGONIADS.

 

The genus  Begonia is now taking in gardens the place which it deserves, for it is certainly one of the richest in brilliant colours, or variety of form; and in the hands of good managers it is one of the most easily cultivated of all known genera. The blossoms too appear for the most part during the winter months, and keep well when cut for the decoration of sitting rooms.

 

Order#: PAX-14

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.
