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

This beautiful gem was originally found by Dr. Buchanan Hamilton in Upper Nepal, among moss, on the trunks of trees. Mr. Griffith met with it on the Bootan mountains in similar situations, in dense forests towards Santagong at the elevation of 8000 feet above the sea (Itinerary Notes, p. 158). Recently it has been sent from the Khasijah hills to Messrs. Veitch, by Mr. Thomas Lobb, who found it at a place called "Sanahda," at the height of 7000 feet...............

Order#: PAX-51

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
