These beautiful hand-colored lithographs come from the rare work entitled Pescatorea, Iconographie de Orchidées. Printed under the principal author Jean Jules Linden, only 1500 copies of this work were produced. Linden was director of the Botanical Gardens in Brussels, and collaborated with horticulturists Planchon, Reichenbach, and Luddemann to produce this work. It was published by M. Hayez in Brussels in 1860. They are on thick-stock paper ~12 3/4″ by 17 3/4″.
