Withers, Mrs. (illus).
London. No date. [1857- 1859].
Lithograph, handcolored, on sheet 14 1/2 x 10 1/4 inches, matted in a conservation mat with hand applied watercolor wash and decorative lines (mat size is 23 3/4 x 19 1/2 inches). Extremely faint evidence of running of green watercolor at lower right leaf, tiny '3' penned above plate number at upper right corner, very good condition. A stunning image by one of the most talented botanical artists of her day, Mrs Augusta Withers, produced for the very scarce, large-sized, publication "Illustrated Bouquet." This is plate XXX. The lithograph was actually drawn on a metal sheet (zincography) by C.T. Rosenberg, printed by C. F. Cheffins & Sons. Item #37995
