Description

This charming 1853 lithograph plate depicts the Citrus Aurantium or Bitter Orange. The signature of lithographer David William Moody appears along the stem. This single flora plate is one of 182 lithographic plates featured in The American Flora, or History of Plants and Wild Flowers by A.B. Strong. This was a four volume set designed as a reference book for botanists, physicians, florists, gardeners and students. Published in 1853 in New York by Green & Spencer, the volumes contained scientific and general description of plants, natural history, chemical and medical properties, mode of culture and propagation.
Some of the lithographic plates were printed in colors but all were finished by hand, by Edwin Whitefield, David W. Moody and others. In the case of this litho is looks like the yellow of the flowers was added by hand.

This very rare book plate needs to be framed in archival quality materials.

• lithographic plate measures 9 7/8" x 7"
• this is a left side book plate with gilt edges on three sides and cut edge on right side
• in good condition with signs of age, darkening in an oval shape from a previous frame, some light foxing and small nick on bottom edge

Also from the same book is this plate:
