These hand-colored Botanical prints are from The Botanic Garden, published from
1825 to 1851 by Benjamin Maund. The Garden consisted of "highly
finished representations of hardy Ornamental Flowering Plants cultivated in Great
Britain". Maund, who is also known as the publisher of The Botanist,
authored the text which described for each plant "their names, classes, orders,
history, qualities, culture and physiological observations". Among the
illustrators were two of Maund's daughters, identified as Miss S. Maund and Miss E. Maund.
Each print is provided in a conservation mat
that is ready to be framed. A photo showing a matted Botanic Garden print is shown
at the end of this page. Included with the Botanical prints are the original text
pages authored by Benjamin Maund.
