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.

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.

Amsterdam, Zacharias Romberg, [1739],, plate 419). Colour-printed mezzoprint by Bartholomäus Seuter finished by hand (sheet 247 x 400 mm; impression 210 x 317 mm). Text missing.
€ 200
Weinmann (1683-1741) was a Regensburg apothecary who organised this massive work, which was published from 1737-1745 and contained over a thousand colour-printed mezzoprint plates representing thousands of plants. The mezzotint process used had been invented by Johann Teyler in the Netherlands around 1688. As practised here by Bartholomäus Seuter (1678-1754) and Johann Elias Ridinger (1698-1767), it was really a combination of etching and mezzotint, which made possible delicate lines and a very fine grain. The addition of handtinting brought about unusual and subtle effects. Some of the best work was done in later volumes by Johann Jakob Haid (1704-1767), who also provides portraits of Weinmann and Bieler (Hunt). The plates are after drawings by Georg Dionysus Ehret, his first published botanical illustrations (although unsigned), N. Asamin and others. Probably from the Dutch edition, which is preferably to the German one Phytanthoza iconographia, as the quality of the paper and finishing is much higher.

Artists’ names on the the copper-engravings seldom occur and as engraver Fessard is sometimes mentioned.

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.

Sydenham Teast Edwards was a botanical artist who worked for 27 years for Curtis's Botanical magazine. In 1815 he started the rival The botanical register; consisting of coloured figures of exotic plants, cultivated in British gardens; with their history and mode of treatment. The text for the first 14 years is by John Bellenden Ker and the volumes 15-33 by John Lindley as Edward's botanical register. The principal illustrators were Edwards himself, M. Hart and Miss Drake and the engravers Sansom, Smith, S. Watts, White and G. Barclay.

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.

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.

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.
