These Botanical prints feature plants native to South Africa.   The prints are part of a series published from 1921 through 1999.  The series was modeled after Curtis's Botanical Magazine and the objective, as noted by the Editors, "is to convey to the reader the beauty and variety of form of the African flora, to stimulate interest in the study, conservation and cultivation of African plants and to advance the science of botany as well as botanical art".  It is also one of the later examples of hand-colored Botanical prints in our collection.  By the early 1900s techniques such as chromolithography and offset color printing were being used to produce color prints.
