A Pair of handsome Hardy Herbaceous Plants, from NEPAL, belonging to the Natural Order of BUCKWHEATS.
Excerpt from text, which is included along with a copy of the Title Page:
'l'HESE two beautiful little plants belong to the same race as our own chaarming wild Bistort and represent it on the mountains of N. India. Dr. Royle says they occur on such mountains as Mussooree, Choor, Kedarkanta, and Peer Punjal, or from 7000 to near 13,000 feet of elevation, and on the Kherang, Chandow, and other passes' along with the European viviparous Bistort (P. viviparum). This seems to be the greatest elevation at which such plants occur in India.

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.
