& FREDERIC WESTCOTT 1837 -1840
THE FLORAL CABINET & MAGAZINE OF EXOTIC BOTANY
This was another ambitious floral publication in an era
of many. The goal of the author was to produce a
periodical of plants remarkable for their beauty and
rarity and illustrated by well know artists of the day.
These included such illustrious names as de Candolle,
Lindley, Hooker, J. Bateman as well as the authors
themselves. It is rare, as it amounted to only three
volumes, in one edition only. There are 137 hand colored
lithographed plates, with some truly magnificent
botanical illustrations. Reference: Great Flower Books
1990, p 108.
The prints are in excellent condition, with the colors
of a beauty and vividness unsurpassed to this day in the
world of hand colored prints. The paper is white to
creamy and the colors very intense. Each print measures
approximately 8 inches wide by 10 1/2 inches long. There
is very little foxing. Some prints are a bit toned or
offset, as shown.
Each print is accompanied by the ORIGINAL text and a
copy of the title page. Please review the photos
carefully as they are very accurate.
