Description
An exquisitely illustrated showcase of Pierre-Joseph Redouté’s (1759-1840) unrivalled botanical art and a privileged glimpse into the magnificent gardens and greenhouses of a bygone Paris. Dubbed ‘the Raphael of flowers’, this compact edition collects all of Redouté’s engravings for ‘Les Roses’, 1817-24; and a selection of the finest images from ‘Les Liliacées’, 1802-16, and ‘Choix des plus belles fleurs’, 1827. Hundreds of flowers, each with a caption; from the gardens of Europe to much-prized exotics. Includes an informative introductory essay to set the works in content and a useful index of modern botanical names.
