Journal Special Ses Serre St Des Jardins was published in Ghent, Belgium starting in 1854. It was a collaborative effort of the great plant specialists, hybridizers and hunters of the day including Charles Lemaire, a prominent botanist & professor, Ambroise Verschaffelt of the Nursery Verschaffelt family & Jean Linden, the renowned orchid hunter and editor of Les Orchidees.

It was an exciting time in Europe, when the race to discover new plants and bring new cultivars to a never satiated public was in full swing. These prominent botanists collaborated on many of the seminal works of the day including Verschaffelt’s Nouvelle Iconographie des Camellias. The lavishly illustrated plates, hand colored or finished lithographs contain a wonderful selection of plants following the interests of the famous contributors of the era - orchids, camellias, roses, palms, rhododendrons, & azaleas & exotic plants among many others. References: Nissen BBI 2254. (21), Great Flower Books 1990 p.159. The color plates are very bright & the condition generally excellent.

We are currently offering a selection of prints from volumes published from 1860-1896. Each print is untrimmed and has never been bound, so is of larger size than usual, the single plates measuring approximately 10 1/4 by 7 inches, and the doubles 10 1/2 by 14 inches. The relevant descriptive text is provided whenever possible. Sometimes it may be a copy due to the way the descriptions were sometimes back-to-back. The condition of these prints is excellent, with the paper generally quite white & the colors very vivid. On some there may be slight marginal foxing. Please inspect the image carefully, as it is very accurate. All our prints are original antique prints, and these prints are at least a 100 years old.
