With 49 engraved plates. 4 plates are or garden designs or ornaments; three of them are colored and all are moderately foxed. The remaininng plates are all of flowers, all are hand colored and two are folding plates. Many orchid species are represented. Most of the plates are in fine, unfoxed condition; in the few where there is foxing present, it is only a light spot or two and marginal. The tissue guard of one plate has partially stuck to the plate and the guard has torn; it can probably be removed without damage. THe binding is moderately worn but still presentable.
