THE TWO-ROWED APONOGETE.

(APONOGETON DISTACHYON.)

ORIGINAL PRINT

 [PLATE 43.]  

Date: 1851-1852

A hardy Aquatic, from tile CAPE OF GOOD HOPE, belonging to the Natural Order of ARROWGRASSES

Excerpt from text, which is included along with a copy of the Title Page:

WE reproduce this plant in the hope of presenting a better figure of it than has yet appeared, and of drawing attention to a hardy aquatic of which too little is known. Several years have now elapsed since it was reported that a handsome sweet-scented water-plant from the Cape had been naturalised in the tanks of the Botanic Garden, Edinburgh. It was to the species before us that allusion was made, and it has since found its way, here and there, southward. It was introduced into Cornwall by Sir Charles Lemon, where, as welt as in Devonshire, it seems to have as completely established itself as if it were a native of the county.

Order#: PAX-43

Size: 8 ˝” x 11”

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 print offered for sale here is 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.

Condition: Excellent Vibrant color.

Price: $59.99
