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 Severeyns, Stroobant and De Pannemaker, who had mastered the art of colour-printing from stone.

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.

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.

"Er bleibt für immer der geniale Schöpfer und Begründer der praktischen und wissenschaftlichen Pomologie. J.H. Knoop war der erste wahre und wirkliche Pomologe im wissenschaftliche richtigen Sinne des Wortes!" (Martini). The first work on apples and pears, Pomologia, became the most popular treatise on pomology in the eighteenth century and went through 3 Dutch editions and was translated into German and French, while the second work, Fructologia, is devoted to fruits other than apples and pears. The hand-coloured folded plates show the fruits on natural size. They were engraved by Jan C. Philips or Jacob Folkema after the original drawings of Knoop. The plates of Fructologia are unsigned.

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.
