THE BLAND AMARYLLIS.

(AMARYLLIS BLANDA.)

ORIGINAL PRINT

 [PLATE 68.]  

Date: 1851-1852

A Stove Bulbous Plant from the GAPE OF GOOD HOPE, belonging to the Natural Order Of AMARYLLIDS.

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

FOR the opportunity of figuring this beautiful plant we are indebted to Mrs. Bellenden Ker, in whose collection at Cheshunt, it flowered last September. It was bought in a lot marked " Hybrid," at the sale of the plants of the late Dean of Manchester. Kept in a stove it grew very rapidly, soon going to rest; and suspicion arose that the stove was not the right place for it. But last year, while apparently at rest, it threw up two large flower-stems, loaded with fragrant bloom. The bulb is covered with a pale brown soft skin, composed of multitudes of thin layers filled with cottony threads. The leaves are grass-green, an inch and a quarter broad, with a regularly-rounded point. Twelve or thirteen beautiful large flowers, thin, delicate French white, changing to pink, load the
end of the scape, forming an umbel of great sweetness.................

Order#: PAX-68

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
