From a series of bold and colorful illustrations of familiar American flowers. Created as “reference for botanists, physicians, florists, gardeners, students, etc.,” these prints are some of the most inviting and decorative mid-century botanical illustrations. It is their full and bright coloring, as well as the exceptionally fine selection of flowers that make them so appealing. This print is of particular interest as it was lithographed by Edmund and Fanny Palmer, the latter who would later go on to considerable fame as one of the major artists who worked for Currier & Ives.
