1914 Sowerby Antique Botanical Print, Lady's Tresses, Bird's Nest Orchid, Helleborine, Bog Orchis, Yellow Iris, Plate 63 (Plants 1241 - 1260)
This beautiful hand colored botanical plate is from a book on British wild flowers illustrated by John Sowerby. This book plate being from an edition published in 1914. These plates were all hand finished in colour. A very time consuming job I would imagine.
There is a page of text that will accompany this print that describes each of the 20 plants.
The size of page is approx. 9.7 x 6.3 inches.
As with all old prints there may be minor imperfections. I have shown a very detailed scan so that any marks can be easily seen....Please study the scanned image for all details.
The watermark has been digitally added and will not appear on the print you receive.
