About this Item

4to (23.0 x 30.9 cm). Original quarter black pebble cloth and green paperboards in very good condition. Collation: 30 stiff gray paper leaves sewn to backing. Each leave has12 red ink rectangles in three horizontal rows on each side. The upper portion of each seed packet is glued to the gray paper within an individual red ink margin. Each packet has a printed number at the top and complete taxonomic name beneath the flower image. There are 651 seed packets in alphabetical order glued to both sides of each of 27 leaves and the first row of the 28th leaf. The remaining leaves have culture information for each of 292 plants representative of those illustrated on the seed packets. The culture information for each genus is printed on small squares of paper glued in alphabetical order to the stiff gray paper. Each packet has chromolithograph image on each side. The front has the flower and the back has an image of the entire plant. All packets are in very good condition. Collection of seed packets with chromolithograph images of plants and flowers. This is an exceptional and scarce collection of early printed seed packets collected in a single volume. It is likely that a traveling salesman in Germany would present such an album to nurseries to illustrate the available seeds for ordering. Most of the plants are annuals or biennials. This album is in very good condition and probably not used in the field. This suggests that it may have been for reference in a seed company's office. Bookseller Inventory # 0000268
