The Verschaffelts were a family of Belgian nurserymen specializing in camellias. They published the newly introduced species and hybrids in this very rare and monumental work from 1848-1860. It continues Lorenzo Berlèse’s work Iconographie du genre Camellia. The fine plates were drawn by Bernard Léon, L. Stroobant and son.
