Background:

These colorful prints are from a late-1800s guide to flowers native to Switzerland, and of the adjacent mountain districts of France, Italy and Austria.  As noted in the Introduction to this series "The Flora of the Alps is a subject of never-failing interest even to the casual visitor to the 'playground of Europe'.  Probably nowhere on the face of the globe is to be found, especially in the spring and early summer, a greater wealth of brightly coloured flowers, often growing in enormous masses, festooning the rocks, and making the alpine pastures a veritable floral carpet."
