About this Item

Henry John Elwes (1846-1922) was a British botanist, naturalist and author, celebrated for his travels throughout Asia, including the Himalayan Mountains, with the Geographical Section of the British Association and noted for his collection of lily specimens. In 1880 Elwes published a spectacular collection of prints depicting various species of one of the world's favorite flowers, the lily. The “Monograph of the Genus Lilium” is the result of a collaborative effort, the organization and text by Elwes and the images by renowned botanical illustrator Walter Hood Fitch. Although Fitch's drawings for Elwes' “Genus Lilium” were the last great works of his career, in his lifetime, Fitch produced nearly 10,000 illustrations. This hand-colored folio size lithograph, Lilium Maximowicai, var. Bakeri, var. Regeli; Lilium pseudotigrinum, measures 21.75” x 15” and is in mint condition. These lilies are richly colored with vibrant green stems and leaves and large flowers in vibrant shades of yellow, orange and pink. The blooming flowers are expertly detailed and naturalistically rendered on this superb lithograph. Also included in, adding a scientific aspect, are drawings of the bulbs of the flowers.
