THE CARMINE TEICHOPIL
A beautiful Epiphyte, from CENTRAL AMERICA, 'belonging to the Natural Order of ORCHIDS.
Excerpt from text, which is included along with a copy of the Title Page:
beantiful species of Trichopil was found in Central America by Mr. Warczewicz (not by
Linden as has been stated), by whom drawings and living plants were sent to England in 1849,
under the name of T. coccinea, by which it was publicly sold, and has since been universally known.

marginata, either in justice to the zealous and ill-requited traveller who found it, or in the interest of science, which
suffers seriously in public estimation by the needless changes in names made by writers on Natural

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.
