Delightful and unusual antique botanical book plate illustrated by MR W. H. Fitch (1817-1892) published in 1874. There are two variations of this print as follows:
1) Hand-coloured. These prints vary in condition. Most plates are slightly yellowed and some have grubby marks and a little edge-tanning. Some of the coloured prints have damp-stains which are more pronounced on the back than the front. Others have small binding holes to the left and a few are slightly ragged on the left whilst others are pasted onto a narrow strip of paper on the binding edge. A few have library stamps embossed.
2) Black and white. These prints have interesting library marks which add to the character. The little purple stamp reads 'York Library' and the embossed stamp reads 'City of York Public Library'.
Both sets of prints are blank on the reverse. There are some pages which have been printed with small or no margins, the printing being run to the edge of the paper. They would need to be matted carefully before framing.
Paper size: 18 x 24 cm or 7 x 9 inches, approximately.
Your print will be protected by a polythene/cello bag, within rigid packaging, and posted Priority Airmail if overseas. All prints, whether antique, vintage or modern should be protected from exposure to direct sunlight.

Walter Hood Fitch was one of the world's most prolific botanical artists and probably produced these drawings whilst working at Kew Gardens. He was the sole artist for Curtis's Botanical Magazine for over 40 years. The drawings are utterly charming and were originally produced as sheets for use in museums and classrooms.
