Dracaena rigoutsi

This lithograph is from L'Illustration Horticole by Jean Jules Linden, one of the finest botanical periodicals 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 illustrated by some of the best botanical artists of the day, such as Goosens, De Pannemaeker and Stroobant. Many are enhanced by delicate shellac finishing. Ours come from editions from 1854 to 1896.

This print is an authentic antique, not a reproduction and is in excellent condition.
