Les Fougères; choix des espèces les plus remarquables pour la dècoration des serres, parcs, jardins et salons
(Ferns; the most remarkable chosen specimens for the decoration of greenhouses, parks, gardens and salons.)

J. Rothschild, editeur
Libraire de la Société Botanique de France

Printed in Paris, 1867

Original antique fern chromolithograph (color lithograph) prints nearly 150 years old,
after the designs of Riocreux, Faguet, Poteau and van D'Argent.

These make wonderful wall groupings of 3, 5, 7 or more—fill the whole wall with these attractive yet inexpensive fern prints!

Sheet size is approximately 6.75 x 10.5 inches (approximately 17.1 x 26.7 cm)

Condition is generally excellent—the paper is softly age-toned to a creamy antique off-white color, with typical light browning around edges of paper.
A few plates may have minor foxing, so please have a look at the enlargements to assess the condition of each print.
The original descriptive text (in French), many with woodcut illustrations, accompanies each original chromolithograph.

Please click on the thumbnails below for a larger image. (Darvill's digital watermark does not appear on the original antique print.)
