Magazine of botany and register of flowering plants
London -1849 1834 - First edition. 16 Volumes, 8vo, 717 engraved plates (716 hand-coloured) complete, contemporary black half morocco gilt, a fine set. Paxton (1803-1865), was head gardener to the Duke of Devonshire at his great Chatsworth estate, which he made one of the most famous gardens of Europe. The plants depicted include many exotic species newly introduced to England. His interest in such species went hand-in-hand with his interest in greenhouses and hothouses which allowed these plants to flourish. A complete set such as this is scarce. The drawings on which the plates are based are by F.W. Smith, S. Holden, C .J. Fleming, and O. Jewitt. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
