Antique Prints from Paxton 
The Magazine of Botany 1840

As a botanical artist and illustrious English horticulturist, Joseph Paxton produced The Magazine of Botany, and Register of Flowering Plants. This series of magazines was published in London 1834-1849.The magazine contained descriptions of flowering plants, as well as advice for the gardener.  Each print is hand colored, and treated with an egg white wash to preserve the color.  The prints listed for sale here are from Volume 7 of the Magazine, published in 1840.

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.
