Paxton, Joseph - Paxton's Magazine of Botany and Register of Flowering Plants        (Vols. I - V)

PAXTON, Joseph (1803-1865). Paxton's Magazine of Botany, and register of flowering plants. London: Bradbury & Evans for Orr & Smith (vols.I-II) or W.S.Orr & Co. (vols.III-V), 1834-1838.

  5 volumes (of 16, vols. 1-5), (7" - 9.5"). 223 hand-colored engraved or lithographed flower plates by F.W. Smith or S. Holden, some folding, (Plate Index is shown at the bottom of this page). There are also numerous wood-engraved illustrations. Contemporary green cloth, spine gilt lettered. Bacon Free Library (bookplate). Pages in good crisp condition with no creasing to corners and free of tears and splits. Very little minor foxing to a few plates. The work is noted for the large number of exotic plants depicted, including many orchids, and for the richness and vibrancy of the hand-coloring.

The correct number of plates is not known with certainty, Stafleu and Cowan quote the New York Botanical Society copy (with 723 plates) but say that they "are not sure that 723 is the exact number of plates issued." Nissen calls for 768 plates. Nissen BBI 2351; Stafleu & Cowan 7554.
