This pair of original botanicals comes from the journal 'Flore de Serres et des Jardins de l'Europe' (Flowers of the Greenhouses and Gardens of Europe) founded by the Belgian horticulturist Louis van Houtte, who was the owner of the most successful nursery of time on the European continent, and edited together with the prominent botanist Charles Lemaire. The journal contained more than 2000 plates, showcasing the lavish engravings of unique botanicals from around the world.

These illustrated lithographs are hand-colored and enhanced with gum Arabic. 

Our lithographs are in excellent condition with very little foxing.
