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.

All gardeners owe an infinite debt of gratitude to William Robinson - founder of The Garden (1871-1927) and Flora and Sylva (1903-05), and author of The English Flower Garden (1883, etc.) and other works - who helped to break the tyranny of formal bedding and, like Ruskin, drew attention to the beauties of the wild garden. Among the artists whom he employed was Henry Moon, who struck a new and personal, if not entirely healthy, note in botanical illustration. … (Blunt & Stearn). From 1880 Henry George Moon’s plant portraits dominated the pages of The Garden, a popular horticultural publication. Renowned for his lifelike paintings of orchids, Moon appealed to Robinson because of his ability to sketch flowers in a graceful, naturalistic style. The subtle colourings of his paintings and simple arrangement of flowers were very unlike the more stylised renderings that appeared in competitors’ publications. The beautiful colour-plates were lithographed and printed by the Belgian firm G. Severeyns and its successor J.L. Goffart, notable for their craftmanship.

He was a French physician and naturalist who served as physician to the king of Poland. He left his post to pursue his interest in natural history and published vast illustrated folios on botany, books on mineralogy, agriculture, ornithology and medicine. The attractive plates are mostly based on original drawings in the Collection des Vélins of the Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris. Artists’ names on the the copper-engravings seldom occur and as engraver Fessard is sometimes mentioned.

This print is among 1200 plates from this most extensive work, published from 1775-1780 by the extremely prolific author Pierre Joseph Buchoz (1731-1807, also spelled as Buch’oz or Buc’hoz). He was a French physician and naturalist who served as physician to the king of Poland. He left his post to pursue his interest in natural history and published vast illustrated folios on botany, books on mineralogy, agriculture, ornithology and medicine. The attractive plates are mostly based on original drawings in the Collection des Vélins of the Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris. Artists’ names on the the copper-engravings seldom occur and as engraver Fessard is sometimes mentioned.

Sydenham Teast Edwards was a botanical artist who worked for 27 years for Curtis’s Botanical magazine.

Hart and Miss Drake and the engravers Sansom, Smith, S. Watts, White and G. Barclay.

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.
