Background:

These beautiful botanical prints date from the early years of Curtis's Botanical Magazine.   The Botanical Magazine is one of the oldest - and longest published - of the British horticultural magazines (1787-1983). 

Founded by William Curtis, management and editorship of the Magazine was taken over by John Sims in 1799 upon the death of Curtis.

All of the prints shown on this page are based on illustrations by the Scottish-born botanical artist Walter Hood Fitch (1817-1892).  
During Fitch's lifetime he executed over 10,000 drawings for various publications, including Curtis's Botanical Magazine.   Such was his skill that he could draw directly onto the lithographic stone to save time.  Upon his death the obituary in Nature stated "...his reputation was so high and so world-wide that it is unnecessary to say much on this point".
