L’Illustration Horticole was one of the finest botanical periodicals, and was first published in Belgium in 1854. It aimed educate people about the fascinating plants being gathered from around the world and hopefully persuade them to buy from the associated plant nurseries.

The driving forces behind it were Charles Lemaire, a professor of botany, Ambroise Verschaffelt of the Nursery Verschaffelt and the Linden family, renowned Belgian horticulturists.

The prints were lavishly illustrated and lithographed by some of the best botanical artists of the day, such as Goosens, De Pannemaeker and Stroobant. Many are enhanced by delicate shellac finishing.


The prints are drawn from editions ranging from 1854 to 1896.

Print method

Chromolithograph. Print on one side, blank on the reverse.
