Flore de Serres et des Jardins de l'Europe (Flowers of the Greenhouses and Gardens of Europe) was founded by Louis van Houtte, owner of the most successful nursery of the time on the European continent, and edited together with the prominent botanist Charles Lemaire. The journal, with more than 2000 plates, was a showcase for lavish engravings of unique botanicals from around the world. The beautifully illustrated plates, hand colored or finished lithographs contain a wonderful selection of plants following the plant rages of the era - orchids, palms, rhododendrons, azaleas water lilies and exotic plants among the 23 volumes. Most of the plants depicted in the journal were for sale in van Houtte's nursery, so in one sense these plates acted as his catalogue.
We are delighted to have recently located a large selection of the journal's prints. They are in excellent condition, with lavish coloring and hand finishing and many stunning images. There are two sizes, the single prints each measuring approximately 6 3/4 inches by 9 3/4 inches, and the doubles or folio prints measuring 9 3/4 by 13 1/2 inches, and has the folds original to the double prints in the issue, which will largely press out. The relevant descriptive text is provided whenever possible. The condition of these prints is excellent, with the paper generally quite white & the colors very vivid. All our prints are original antique prints, and these prints are about 150 years old.
