The Ending of the nineteenth century produced magnificent publications brought about through the impetus of botanical exploration, which reached its peak just before the turn of the century. The body of art and science were tightly interwoven. It was a time when the natural sciences spawned the most artful expression of the printer's craft ever achieved. Painters of flowers are perhaps more numerous than painters of birds. Certainly, their folios of original paintings and drawings are in every herbarium, such as Kew in England, the queen of the world's herbaria. The Images found on this CD were produced as hand colored prints, which was the method used prior to the development of the many -stone chromolithographic process developed in the last quarter of the nineteenth century. A botanical publication which rivaled others of the era was REVUE HORTICOLE published in Paris France 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.

This CD contains the entire collection of original images as well as a set which has been digitally enhanced in the transfer to CD as in the scan below. These web images are electronically watermarked, the CD images are not.
