Gand (Gent), chez l'éditeur Ambroise Verschaffelt, Fils, Horticulteur, rue de Chaume, 1858, large in-8°, 25,5 x 17 cm, (6)nn pp + 48 colored lithographic plates + 48 text leaves. (Complete). Bound in contemporary black half leather, top edge gilt, white satin-like endpapers. Joints of binding a bit rubbed but still a fine/good copy with a very clean interior. There are only a few foxing spots on the tissue guards, 4 plates are slightly but evenly browned, all the other plates and text leaves are stainless. This is an attractive complete yearly volume of one of the rarest Belgian 19th century botanical periodicals with chromolithographic plates. The publication served as an, extremely handsome and beautifully printed, catalogue to the camellia nursery which was run by the Verschaffelt family in 19th century Ghendt. The camellia flower is very well suited to be illustrated by chromolithography which renders well the strong contrasts between the large red colored flower and its heavy dark green foliage. In all 13 years (or volumes) were published. Complete sets are now virtually impossible to find on the market.
