Background:

These colorful prints of Trees are based on illustrations by Walter Hood Fitch, the well known British botanical artist in the first half of the 1800s.  His training as a landscape painter is evident in these prints which feature Trees in natural settings in the areas of Kew and Windsor.

The prints were part of a folio describing each variety of Tree using both botanical narratives and poetry.  Following is an example of the verse included with the description for the Willow:

     "Willows to panting shepherds shade dispense,
     To bees their honey, and to corn defence." - Virgil
