Background:

These prints are from William Baxter's British Flowering Plants, published from 1834 to 1843.  Baxter, a Scotsman, was appointed curator of the Oxford Botanic Garden at the age of 25.  Most of the botanical illustrations were done by two local artists - Issac Russell and C. Matthews, and colored by Baxter's daughters and daughter-in-law.  Wilfred Blunt, in The Art of Botanical Illustration, describes the Baxter botanicals as "attractive, and, in the main, well-illustrated".
