Curtis Botanical Flowers

Curtis Botanical Magazine

William Curtis (1746-1799) first published the “Botanical Magazine” in 1787.  The
Botanical Magazine is one of the oldest and longest published of the British horticultural magazines (1787-1983), sometimes referred to as Curtis Botanical Magazine.  After Curtis died the magazine was published by his brother, Thomas Curtis.  Later, Samuel Curtis (a son-in-law of William Curtis), managed the publication from 1801 to 1845.  The Magazine had a variety of editors after Curtis including John Simms (1800-1826), William Jackson Hooker (1827-1865) and Joseph Dalton Hooker (1865-1904).  The magazine published over 162 volumes with almost 10,000 hand colored plates of known plants.  The botanical prints in the first 70 volumes were copper plate engravings colored by hand.  Some of the later prints were color lithographs.  Our antique prints are all hand-colored copper plate engravings from early volumes.  Early prints are particularly beautiful with lovely hand colored large illustrations principally by Sydenham, Teak, Edwards, and with a few in the early years by James Sowerby and William Kilburn.
