This is a gorgeous group of botanical engravings. Maund was a pharmacist, botanist and bookseller who was most noted as the publisher of several botanical periodicals with beautifully colored plates. The plates are not merely pretty plates; some are presented in a scientific manner with a small images left uncolored so that the viewer could examine leaf and flower structures. This group includes rhododendron, poinsettia, fuchsia, and many other perennial favorites.
Very good with minor toning and lush, original hand color.
