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

Condition: Excellent Vibrant color, with some very minor
