Description

The Nouvelle Iconographie des Camellias was published in Ghent, Belgium starting in 1854 for 13 years. It is probably the rarest and greatest camellia catalogue of all, produced for the pioneer camellia nursery run by Ambroise Verschaffelt of the Nursery Verschaffelt family.

Prominent botanists collaborated on many of the seminal works of the day including Verschaffelt Nouvelle Iconographie des Camellias, now a very rare work. The drawings are by Bernard Leon, printed on stone by G. Severeyns with vibrant colouring enhanced by gum arabic.
