ORIGINAL PRINT

 [PLATE 36.]

THE BLUE VANDA.

(VANDA COERULEA.)

A stove Epiphyte, from Woods on the Khasya Hills of India, belonging to Orchids.

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

This glorious plant, perhaps the noblest of the Indian race, was called Vanda Coerulea by Mr. Griffith, who found it among the Khasya or Cossya Hills, and sent us dried specimens. Its flowers are as large as those of Vanda teres, and the foliage is as good as that of Aerides odoratmm. It is to be regretted that we should have no more exact information as to where it may be found, but we can hardly suppose that it could be missed by any plant-collector who might be sent after it into Sylhet.

Order#: PAX-36

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.
