These beautiful prints are from one of the most important orchid references published in the 1800s - Lindenia Iconography of Orchids.  The narrative is by Jean Jules Linden (1817-1898), his son Lucien and other contributors.  Linden's interest in Orchids "blossomed" when at the age of 19 he was sponsored by the Belgium government on a scientific mission to Central and South America.  Over the next 10 years he traveled this region in search of new Orchid species.  During his life, Linden, along with Lucien, was responsible for importing over 1100 different species of Orchids into Europe.  The complete Lindenia featured over 813 varieties of Orchids.  Most of the illustrations shown here are by A. Goosens, with the brilliant chromolithography the work of the noted 19th century Belgium artist and lithographer Pieter de Pannemaeker.
