This wonderful, scarce botanical engraving is from Henry Andrews's The Botanist's Repository, Comprising coloured engravings of New, and Rare Plants only.... The work was published in London by T. Bensley for the author between 1797 and 1815.

Each engraving features original hand-coloring, all of which are accredited to Andrews himself, and are printed on J. Whatman watermarked, woven paper. Andrews stated in the preface to the work that his intent was to make these prints as close to hand colored drawings as possible.

This piece was purchased in Paris last year (Jan 2020) prior to the lockdown and is in excellent condition!
