The plates are reproductions of actual specimens and give the appearance of the plants very accurately. The flower details are separately drawn at the bottom of most plates and hand-coloured. … for though the photoxygraphic plates of the twenty-five volumes of the Herbier de la Flore Française of Louis Antoine Cusin (1824-1901) and Edme Ansberque (1828-1905), published at Lyons between 1867 and 1876, are of considerable botanic importance, they are aestetically disappointing (Blunt & Stearn p. 142). However the plants are carefully selected and nicely arranged.
