They were in excellent condition and were ~9.5 x 6 inches (24 cm x 15 cm). Paxton was a hugely talented man. He started as an assistant gardener with no education & rose to become the head gardener to the Duke of Devonshire. His design of the conservatory at Chatsworth House served as a model for his design of the Crystal Palace for the London Exhibition of 1851. Incredibly, he designed this giant, intricate building in less than 9 days on a piece of blotting paper. The man must have been a genius! These days he is best remembered for his very high quality botanical periodicals such as Paxton's Magazine of Botany which was published in 16 vols from 1834-49.
