The plates are reproductions of actual specimens and give the appearance of the plants very accurately. The flower details are separately drawn at the bottom of most plates and hand-coloured. … for though the photoxygraphic plates of the twenty-five volumes of the Herbier de la Flore Française of Louis Antoine Cusin (1824-1901) and Edme Ansberque (1828-1905), published at Lyons between 1867 and 1876, are of considerable botanic importance, they are aestetically disappointing (Blunt & Stearn p. 142). However the plants are carefully selected and nicely arranged.

From: English botany; or, coloured figures of British plants by James Edward Smith.

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.

The Flora batava, a monumental work forming a beautifully illustrated survey of all indigenous plants in the Netherlands. It was started in 1800 by Jan Kops, a Dutch agronomist and professor of botany at Utrecht. The first 10 volumes constitute all that was prepared and issued under his supervision. When finished at last in 1934, Willem Jan Lütjeharms was the editor for volume 28, in which he concludes that this work has ended now and that publication took longer than any comparable foreign flora: De Flora Batava heeft langer geleefd dan een der met dit werk vergelijkbare buitenlandsche plaatwerken. The long publication period reflects the change in the technique of its illustrations. Initially copper-engravings were used, followed by lithographs, all coloured by hand, but from volume 25 colour-printing was gradually introduced. Also several artists were involved, but the plates are not signed, nor much information is given about them. The first publisher, J.C. Sepp en Zoon, was renowned for its scientific colour-plate books. Each plate is accompanied by a text in Dutch and French. The work was issued in 8vo and 4to. This plate is in the most desirable large 4to format.
