Paxton produced The Magazine of Botany, and Register of Flowering Plants. This series of magazines was published in London 1834-1849.

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.
