Antique original chromolithograph of Ghost Orchid (Epipogium aphyllum) in a pine forest. The Ghost Orchid (Epipogium aphyllum) is famous for its unpredictable appearance; in many localities it has been seen just once. It is found in beech, oak, pine and spruce forests on base-rich soils.
This fine rare botanical print was part of a book by an eminent Austrian botanist published in Italy in 1892. It is an extraordinary chromolithograph with rich and deep colors.
Size: approx. 10" by 7"
In very good condition. Well aged colors and a nice creamy patina. The back is blank and paper is thick.
Minor imperfections are to be expected from vintage prints due to their age. Important blemishes are described and shown in the pictures (please look at them carefully). Colours might vary depending on your monitor.
This is the actual page from the 1892 book, not a reproduction.
