Our Antique Botanical Art Sketchbooks are unique in the fact that they not only offer the purchaser an antique reprint of an early botanical print but we also provide a companion black & white sketch of the original so you can create your ownMoreOur Antique Botanical Art Sketchbooks are unique in the fact that they not only offer the purchaser an antique reprint of an early botanical print but we also provide a companion black & white sketch of the original so you can create your own personal piece of artwork.This book exhibits some of the circa 1829 work of John Lindley, who was professor of botany at the university of london at the time he created these colored drawings for Edwards botanical register. We think he would be both surprised and pleased that the artwork he created almost 190 years ago was still being viewed and appreciated.The original prints on the left have been reprinted in their “as found” condition. Due to their advanced age it is expected that there be evidence of exposure to the environment over time. We have cleaned up and removed water spots, etc. from the black & white sketches on the right.
