Botanicals, Edwards: Primula praenitens, Chinese Primrose
Botanical Prints from "The Botanical Register".
The other day we had a chance to select from a collection these fine flower copper etching prints which stem from Sydenham Edwards' "The Botanical Register" which comprises a total of 2719 flower prints published in 33 volumes!!! published in London between 1815 and 1847. These hand-picked prints are very clean and highly decorative. Their original hand-coloring is true to nature and very handsome! Each one is accompanied by the text to the flower on a separate sheet. A joy to the eye.
Each page is dated.
