Vintage Botanical Floral Prints, Set of 4

Prints depicting the flowers that bloom during each of the twelve months were first published 1730 in London. They are based on the work of Robert Furber (1674–1756), a British horticulturist and author, best known for writing the first seed catalog produced in England. Furber’s most notable work was ‘Twelve Months of Flowers’. The book was written as a catalog of plants and seeds and featured twelve detailed engravings of seasonal plants in bloom. Henry Fletcher produced each of the twelve hand-colored engravings from paintings by Pieter Casteels. Each plant was numbered, with a list of the corresponding species names provided. More than 400 different species of plant were featured. The prints in this collection include ‘February’, ‘November’, ‘April’ and ‘May’ Flowers.
