L'Illustration Horticole

L’Illustration Horticole
Jean Jules Linden (1817 – 1898) published one of the finest botanical periodicals of the latter half of the 19th Century. L’Illustration Horticole was first published in Ghent, Belgium in 1854, and the plates were lavishly illustrated and lithographed by some of the very best botanical artists and lithographers - A. Goosens, P. De Pannemaeker and J. Goffart.  The L’Illustration Horticole  a monthly periodical was founded by Linden and became a collaborative effort of many great horticulturists and field botanists of the day.  Jean Linden in his own right was a renowned orchid grower and collector.  Each edition featured chromolithograph of botanical prints. Plants such as orchids, camellias, roses and leafy plants such as ferns and palm trees were represented.  The magazine’s scope included pictures, descriptions, the history and culture of “the most remarkable plants,” new introductions, horticultural history, botanical expeditions, and accounts of the major expositions and of new works on botany and horticulture as well as garden descriptions and layouts.
Pieter De Pannemaeker was a prolific watercolor artist and print maker active in Ghent, Belgium, in the 19th century. He specialized in landscapes and botanicals and contributed to many periodicals and publications at a time when Belgium was a center for botanical publishing. His credits include art and engraving for Jean Jules Linden’s publications Lindenia and L’Illustration Horticole. 
Most of the L'Illustration Horticole periodicals were published in octavo size (10” x 6.5” full page chromolithographs) with some double page prints included as fold outs.  For a brief period the periodical was published in folio, 11 x 14” size.
These antique prints are from the octavo editions and probably from the 1870’s and are in very good condition.  The double page prints do have a fold but it is not yellowed or torn in any areas and once matted the fold is really not visible.
