Transactions of the Horticultural Society of London

Trans Pear 1_edited-1 copy

Beautiful flower and fruit illustrations accompanied reports from the members of the Horticultural Society of New York throughout the 1820’s. Techniques used included engraving, aquatint and stipple, all richly colored by hand.

The majority of the plates in the early volumes are by the very famous William Hooker, and the fruit plates represent some of his best work.
