Background:

Published in London from 1834-1849 by Sir Joseph Paxton, the Magazine of Botany is a predecessor to today's horticultural magazines.  The magazine contained descriptions of flowering plants, as well as advice for the gardener.  Each print is hand colored, and treated with an egg white wash to preserve the color.  The prints shown here are from Volume 11 of the Magazine, published in 1844.
