Hand-coloured copperplate etchings known for their fine details and delicate coloring.
Sheet size: large quarto (approx. 9 x 12 inches) on beautiful woven paper with Whatman watermarks
with vibrant, fresh-looking hand-colouring that has withstood nearly 200 years!

In 1827 Samuel Curtis became editor and sole proprietor of The Botanical Magazine which had been founded by his late cousin and father-in-law William Curtis, thirty years before.
Samuel re-named it, 'The New Series' of The Curtis Botanical Magazine and enlisted the editorial help of William J. Hooker who was Professor of Botany at Glasgow University at the time
Four of Samuel Curtis' daughters were accomplished artists and helped with illustrations for the magazine.
The Curtis Botanical Magazine is without doubt the parent of all the botanical and gardening magazines that exist today.
Darvill's collection of fine Curtis botanicals also includes both "Flora Londinensis" and the "Botanical Magazine"
Please click on a thumbnail to see as much of the plate as could be scanned (margins may appear trimmed, but are indeed full).
The paper is a uniformly creamy off-white although it may appear otherwise on the scans below.
Any exceptions will be noted on the enlarged image.
The Darvill's electronic watermark on the enlargements is to deter image theft and does not appear on the actual print.
