Curtis' Botanical Magazine is probably the finest and most important source of illustrations of orchids and early copies of this publication are now collectors' items with considerable rarity value. This beautiful volume makes available for the first time portraits and scientific details of more than 1200 orchid species, many first described in Curtis' Magazine. The scientific value of this facsimile reprint has been considerably increased by the provision of an updated botanical nomenclature including synonyms and bibliography. The illustrations are of a very high standard and represent the work of leading botanical artists including Walter Hood Fitch, Lilian Snelling and Mary Grierson. These colour plates (a total of 408) form the bulk of the book and have been printed to the very highest standard, and matched against the Basel edition of the Magazine itself.
