PAXTON'S FLOWER GARDEN VOLUME II. 36 BOTANICAL HAND- COLOURED LITHOGRAPHD IMAGES (using a zincographic process) ON COMPACT DISC. BY JOHN LINDLEY AND JOSEPH PAXTON. Designer of the Crystal Palace. 1851-1852 36 high quality hand-colored lithographs from the rare First edition.

This CD disc presents 36 high resolution digital BMP images from the 1851-52 first edition of the rare British publication PAXTON'S FLOWER GARDEN VOLUME II . These images can be printed directly from the CD or imported to Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, PaintShop Pro, Adobe PhotoDelux, PrintMaster and other popular painting and drawing programs and printed on quality inkjet paper producing stunning results suitable for framing. Or for designing your own greeting cards, posters, brochures and calendars.

The print out size is the same size as the originals, if not enlarged or reduced. I have found that these Images print best on Matte paper. When printed directly from the CD, they are the actual size. (The same as the originals) and the result is an awesome print almost indistinguishable as a reprint, even when using a relatively inexpensive home ink jet printer..

As a botanical artist 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 images offered for sale here are 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.

Sir Joseph Paxton (1801-1865) Joseph Paxton was born in Milton Bryan, England in 1801. A farmer's son, he was apprenticed as a gardener to the Chatsworth estate where he eventually attained the position of head gardener. In 1832, Paxton was appointed Manager to the Duke of Devonshire's estates. He designed large greenhouses for the Duke at Chatsworth (including one for the Giant Water Lily), and these were used as the basis for his successful design of the Great Exhibition (1850-1851) building, the Crystal Palace, which used the idea of a simple repeating motif to achieve an economical yet harmonious building. Over 233 designs were submitted for the building to house the "Great Exhibition of the Works of All Nations." Joseph Paxton produced his design for a Crystal Palace on a piece of blotting paper, then submitted the final design in less than 9 days. The building itself was erected in just six months, a remarkable building with 293,655 panes of glass, 330 huge iron columns, and 24 miles of gutters He continued to work on landscape gardening and laying out of public parks, but also designed various country houses and other domestic buildings Never formally educated, Paxton studied independently and used shrewd observation to advance in his field. He received a knighthood in 1850 for his success in artificially producing the Victoria Amazonica under glass.
