 [PLATE 17.]  

THE CLOSE-HEAED BEJAIRIA.

(BEJARIA COARCTATA.)

 A half-hardy evergreen Shrub, with crimson flowers, from the ANDES of NEW GRENADA, belonging to the Order of HATHWORTS.

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

This genus is little known in Europe. Mutis named it after his friend Professor  Bejar, of Cadiz:but Linnaeus, misreading j for f, published it under the erroneous name of Befaria. It should be written as above and sounded Beharia. It is nearly related to the Rhododendron, from which it differs in its petals being all distinct, overlapping each other, and not united into a tube. The species inhabit the Alps of Peru and Mexico, where their beauty becomes fully developed, and rivals that of the Azaleas and Rhododendrons of the -United States and India.

Order#: PAX-17

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.

Price: $49.99
