THE GENTIAN-BLUE PENTSTEMON.

(PENTSTEMON GENTIANOIDES.)

ORIGINAL PRINT

 [PLATE 71.]  

Date: 1851-1852

A Hardy Herbaceous Plant, from MEXICO, belonging to the Order of LINARIADS.

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

MR. BENTHAM has determined, by the examination of authentic specimens, that this is the plant to which Professor Kunth applied the term Gentianoides, and not the long-flowered crimson kind so named in the Botanical Register and Botanical Magazine, and now everywhere in gardens. That kind, having been found near the Beal del Monte mines by the collector Hartweg, is in future to be called P. Hartwegii, and is readily distinguished by its long narrow flowers, growing in a loose naked panicle,
not in a long leafy raceme, as in this instance.......................

Order#: PAX-71

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
