A botanical publication which rivaled others of the era was REVUE HORTICOLE
published in Paris France as a bimonthly founded in 1829 by the authors of “du
Bon Jardinier”. The publishers had witnessed from personal experience that
collectors of botanical art refused to buy folio pictures of unassuming plants
but felt that they would subscribe to an octavo work which pictured the showy
plants that filled their gardens; from this premise was born REVUE HORTICOLE
- Journal D’horticulture. In addition to the botanical plates are line
drawings, gardening advertisements and horticultural articles.
