Societe Nationale d'Horticulture de France, Exposition Generale
Half black calf and mottled green cloth, gilt-stamped lettering on upper board; oblong folio (381x280 mm); containing 71 mounted photographs by C[onstant] Robert of 65 Avenue de la Bourdonnais (credited on the front board), of a French exposition of orchids, roses, lillies, irises, bonsai trees, and fruit. 57 platinum prints and 14 silver prints, ranging in size from 89x127 to 164x229 mm, mounted to sheets (creating a thin border of beige, white, or pale grey) and heavy grey boards, arranged 1 to 4 per page, recto only. A lavish album, just a bit rubbed along the edges. The Paris horticultural society originated in 1827 and, as it grew, became the Royal Horticultural Society (1835), then, in 1885 the "Societe Nationale d'Horticulture de France." The exposition portrayed here was extensive and possibly associated with one of the great international French expositions of the turn of the century. All but two images are interior photographs of plants or displays, including close-ups of specific blooms, arrangements of fruit, wide views of the room, and an array of Bonsai trees in Oriental ceramic pots.
