THE CHINESE PLATYCODE,

(PLATYCODON CHINENSE.)

ORIGINAL PRINT

 [PLATE 61.]  

Date: 1851-1852

A half-hardy Herbaceous Plant, from the southern Coast of China, belonging to the Order of BELLWORTS.

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

THIS is the finest herbaceous plant obtained for the Horticultural Society in China by Mr. Fortnue; but it requires skilful management to gain the beauty of the specimen represented, in the accompanying plate, which was prepared in the Chiswick Garden. It is there cultivated in a pot, filled with peat loam and sand, the first and last in excess, exposed freely during the summer under the slight shade of a low wall, and in winter kept dry in a cold frame. Thus managed it produces fine straight stiff branches from 2 to 3 feet high, bearing several large deep blue flowers in succession
at the end, and ripening seed in some abundance..............................

Order#: PAX-61

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
