Description: Folio size antique print [lithograph] of Orchid 'Cattleya Labiata Warnerii' (Tab 95)from Frederick Sander's 'Reichenbachia, Orchids Illustrated & Described', published in 1888-1894. This work is considered by many to be the pinnacle of all the orchid publications of the period. It was named after Heinrich Gustav Reichenbach (1824-1889), a prominent botanist, ornithologist & orchid fancier. Sander, a native of Ghent & founder of Messsrs Sanders of St Albans, a large nursery firm, intended in this work to illustrate all classes of orchids, drawn life sized & colored by lithography or hand painted when found expedient. For the illustration of the work he engaged the services of painter Henry Moon (1857-1905) and the lithographers Joseph Mansell and Gustav Leutzsch.
The picture does not do justice to this very bright colored lithograph.
