Andrews, Henry (British) two of the hand colored Botanist Repository series 1797. This artwork is presented in roped and gilded frames.
The Botanist’s Repository was his first publication. The series was published in London in ten volumes between 1797 and 1812 and provided affordable images of plants to the growing population of amateur gardeners in Britain. Andrews images have a more artistic appeal compared to the more scientific presentation of rival publications. Decorative and colorful, Andrews’ prints are a lovely representation of early nineteenth century botanical illustration and this volume is an excellent example of his work.
