THE ROSY GREVILLEA.
A Greenhouse Shrub, from NEW HOLLAND, belonging to the Natural Order of PROTEADS.
Excerpt from text, which is included along with a copy of the Title Page:
THIS very pretty greenhouse shrub was sent us some months since. by the Messrs. Henderson, of Pine-apple Place, with no information as to the source from which it was derived. We find, however, a specimen in our Herbarium, collected in South Australia, which we owe to the kindness of His Excellency Governor Hutt.
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.
