FAVORITE FLOWERS of GARDEN AND GREENHOUSE is a four-volume work, authored by Edward Step and edited by William Watson. D. Bois was the assistant curator of The Museum of Natural History in Paris France. He arranged the 316 chromolithographs. The botanicals were drawn and colored directly from living examples. The characteristic pose of each plant has been captured with an engaging sense of accuracy and overall vibrancy. Of particular interest is the floral presentation. In order that the flower structure could be perfectly understood, a vertical cross section shows the relative positions of the flower parts. .

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 printers 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 worlds herbaria. The last quarter of the nineteenth century gave rise to the development of the many -stone chromolithographic process in which as many as 20 different litho stones or color separations had to be prepared.
