Passiflora x belotii 1824

The Gardeners Magazine of Botany 1850
 

'From the first three volumes of the first edition of the Gardener's Magazine of Botany. It is very similar in composition to Paxton's Flower Garden. It was started in 1850, edited by Thomas Moore, Curator of the Botanic Garden of Chelsea & William P. Ayres & published by William Orr in London. The publication was of short duration, but the first issues contain prints of a singular beauty and grace. The plates are good sized measuring approximately 7 inches by 10 inches, on thick creamy paper with no foxing. Prints are accompanied by the relevant descriptive text. These prints are over 150 years old & in superb condition.'
