THE VARIOUS-LEAVED LABICHEA. 

(LABICHEA DIVERSIFOLIA.)

ORIGINAL PRINT

 [PLATE 52.]  

Date: 1851-1852

A Greenhouse Shrub, from SWAN RIVER, belonging to the Order of LEGUMINOUS PLANTS

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

THIS  curious Legnminous genus consists of shrubs with spiny digitate leaves, of which the lateral leaflets are often very much smaller than the central one. They have short clusters of axillary yellow flowers, not unlike those of Cassia, though materially different in structure. In the original species the usual number (5) that occurs in the flowers of Leguminous plants is preserved in the calyx and. corolla ; while at the same time the stamens are reduced to 2, one of whose anthers opens by 2 pores, and the other, which is much longer, opens by one. In this, on. the contrary, we have only 4 sepals, and 4 petals, while the stamens remain as in the original species...................

Order#: PAX-52

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
