Fernandesia Robusta, 1866 Curtis Botanical Print, Stout Fernandesia

Fernandesia robusta, Stout Fernandesia

1866 Original Hand Colored Lithograph and description pages

From Curtis’s Botanical Magazine

Plate No. 5592. Size: Approx. 9 ¼ x 5 ¼ inches

Condition: Excellent, see scanned image. Please read below.

You are looking at an exceptionally beautiful print from William Curtis’ Botanical Magazine, published in 1866, which was depicted from plants at the Royal Gardens of Kew. This plate was illustrated by W. Fitch, who created over 9,000 plates during his stay at the magazine. He often drew directly on the lithographic stone to save time and accuracy.

The description in this volume were written by Joseph Dalton Hooker who was director of the Royal Gardens at Kew in England. You are looking at more than a beautiful image, you are looking at history.

Please look closely at the scanned image. The coloring is very intense, even after over 150 years. Note that there may be some spots or natural discoloring due to aging, esp. on the sides of the print. Please note that each image comes with the description page(s) in an acid free sleeve with an acid free cardboard support. We do not sell modern reproductions. You are offerding on an original. There is a library stamp on the back of the print which does not show through.
