Red Doyenne Pear, Ancient Pear Variety circa 1680 THS144 $xx
Transactions of the Horticultural Society of London, Botanical Prints 1835
In Transactions of the Horticultural Society of London we find some of the most beautifully illustrated and vibrant botanical and fruit prints in botanical illustration. Many prominent artist of the day contributed to the work, including W. Hooker, Mrs. Withers, J. Robertson, B. Cotton, E. Smith and more.
For the first time in England, steel plates were used for the engravings, along with a variety of techniques including mezzotint and hand coloring. The prints are also enhanced with gum arabic so the fruits almost glisten.
Each print measures approximately 8 3/4 by 11 inches on high quality wove paper that is soft white in color with some sheets bearing an 1819 watermark. A few prints are larger at 10 3/4 by 12 inches to 11 1/4 by 16 inches in size. The prints are in excellent condition, with vibrant hand coloring and very few defect. On a few, there is very light text offset as shown. They are rare prints and we are pleased to be able to offer such a good selection.
