Adoxaceae - Adoxa moschatellina
From: British phaenogamous botany; or, figures and descriptions of the genera of British flowering plants by William Baxter.
Oxford, author, J.H. Parker; Whittaker, Treacher, 1834, volume 1, plate 42. Hand-coloured engraving by Isaac Russell (sheet 132 x 218 mm). Text enclosed in photocopy.
€ 35
For his work on the British flora, an attractive and, in the main, well-illustrated book, he employed the services of two local artists - Isaac Russell (an Oxford glass painter) and C. Matthews. Though these men were not trained scientists, they acquired by degrees a good working knowledge of botany; many of the plates - which were coloured by Baxter’s daughters and daughter-in-law - are superior to those in Sowerby (Blunt, p. 213).

One of the most celebrated of all British floras is Sowerby’s English botany. This periodical publication, issued in 267 numbers, and published in thirty-six volumes between 1790 and 1814, contains 2,592 beautifully coloured illustrations of plants most of which are drawn and engraved by James Sowerby. The plates are accompanied by descriptive letterpress written by the eminent botanist James Edward Smith, … (Henrey II p. 141). The plates of the second or small edition of 12 volumes are mostly restrikes of the plates of the first edition, arranged in sytematic order and including supplementary plates. Most of the plates thus bear a double enumeration and are often not so fully coloured as those of the first edition. James Sowerby was the first of several members of this family who became noted as authors and illustrators of books on natural history.

Köhler’s magnum opus was published in parts from 1883-1898. The first volume was finished in 1887, eight years after his death. The set of three volumes with 283 colour-plates was a noteworthy achievement and included European plants of medicinal interest. From the botanical standpoint the finest and most useful series of illustrations of medicinal plants (Great flower books). The beautiful colour-plates after illustrations by Walther Müller and C.F. Schmidt, which were skillfully rendered in lithography by E. Günther.

The founder, publisher and part-editor of this lavish Belgian periodical was Louis van Houtte, the propietor of the largest nursery of its time on the continent. It appeared monthly for almost 40 years and was published by his own printing office in the middle of the gardens, the Horto van Houtteano. All the plants shown were for sale in his nursery and include many exotics. The work is notable for the craftmanship of the Belgian lithographers Severe yns, Stroobant and De Pannemaker, who had mastered the art of colour-printing from stone.
