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

SINCE the introdution of the Fuchsia and the China Rose, our gardens have received nothing so remarkable as this plant. Long since made known to botanists, and sought for by every collector that has visited the temperate parts of South America, it has at last been obtained by Mr. W. Lobb, from the mountains of Peru, for Messrs. Veitch of Exeter, who have flowered what is now represented. The blossoms appear in profusion in the month of May, and are fully four inches long, with a crimson and yellow tube, vivid sanguine in the bud, and rich rose colour when expanded, with a lighter-tint in the inside..................................

Order#: PAX-49

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: $69.99
