Attractive botanical prints of plants representing horticultural achievements of the late Victorian era. The L’Illustration Horticole series was a collaborative effort of the great horticulturists and field botanists of the day directed by Jean Jules Linden, the renowned orchid grower and collector. A monthly periodical founded by Linden in Ghent, Belgium, by 1854, L’Illustration Horticole was initially edited by Charles Lemaire, a prominent botanist and professor, until 1870, when Linden replaced him with Edouard André. Each edition featured chromolithograph botanical prints. In addition to palm trees, plants such as orchids, camellias, roses, were represented. The magazine’s scope included pictures, descriptions, the history and culture of “the most remarkable plants,” new introductions, horticultural history, botanical expeditions, and accounts of the major expositions and of new works on botany and horticulture.
