Paxton’s Flower Garden Prints 1884

An illustrious English horticulturist, Joseph Paxton was born in 1801. Without formal education, his dedication to horticulture eventually earned him a seat in the House of Commons and a knighthood. His Magazine of Botany series, published in 16 volumes from 1834-1849 have become highly prized for their brilliant colors and the outstanding beauty of the plants illustrated. With Professor Lindley, he also published Paxton’s Flower Garden, usually found in three volumes with 108 hands colored plates.

It is from this much rarer and larger work that we are offering these chromolithographs with hand finishing and gum arabic. It is a work distinguished by the artistry and graceful composition of the plates, which also retain the beautiful and intense coloring that the Magazine of Botany is noted for. Each print is large at approximately 8 ½ by 11 inches and is accompanied by the relevant descriptive text whenever possible. The condition of these prints is excellent, with the paper a bright color & almost entirely free of foxing. Please inspect the image carefully, as it is very accurate. These prints are about 133 years old and some of the most vivid and unusual prints of this entire epoch.
