Edwards, Sydenham (illus). Engraved by F. Sansom.
London. G. Kearsley. 1806.
Engraving on wove paper, handcolored, image size 8 3/4 x 7 inches (plus text below) on sheet 10 1/4 x 7 1/4 inches, matted. Little faint soil at lower left, but overall clean and bright. Sydenham Edwards' great talent as a botanical artist is apparent in these strong images, which are beautifully handcolored with much subtlety and attention to detail. The plates were apparently used for more than one publication, including "A Complete Dictionary of Practical Gardening" by Alexander McDonald. Item #36038
