Sir Joseph Paxton

Sir Joseph Paxton (1803- 1865) was a hugely talented man. With no education, he began as an assistant gardener and rose to become head gardener to the Duke of Devonshire.

He designed the grand conservatory for the Duke's stately home, Chatsworth House. This served as a model for Paxton's 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!

His most famous publications are Paxton's Magazine of Botany and Paxton’s Flower Garden. They contained beautiful engravings and lithographs. Here are many of them for you to choose from. They are genuine antiques from the 1800s.
