Lemaire (1800-1871), was a French botanist and specialist on Cactaceae. He worked in Belgium as editor of several important botanical publications, such as the Flore des serres and l'Illustration horticole. Le jardin fleuriste was published from 1851 to 1854 in 4 volumes and is beautifully illustrated, sometimes with large folding plates, which have double numbers. It has a definite preference for the exotic plants, suitable only for the hot-house in northern Europe. In the first half of the 19th century colour-printing from stone dominated the scene of botanical illustration and the Belgian lithographers reached the ultimate in craftmanship, in a period that Belgium was one of the main horticultural centres in Europe.
