 [PLATE 26.]  

THE GAUNTLETTED TACSONIA.

(TACSONIA MANICATA.)

A Greenhouse Creeper from Peru, belonging to the Order of Passionworts

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

WE believe this species to be unrivalled among chmbers, for the brilliant scarlet of its gorgeous blossoms. Placed by their side, the red coat of an English soldier becomes dull and pale. It is a -native of Peru, and probably common there, for many botanical travellers  have observed it.Humboldt and Bonpland brought some varieties from the city of Loxa; Hartweg says that. it is found in hedges near that place; and it forms No. 1294 of Linden!s Herbarium, gathered by his collectors Funck and Schlim, in the province of Merida, at the elevation of 7000 feet above the, sea.

  Order#: PAX-26

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.
