Details

Engraving of Australian native plant from Loddiges Botanical Cabinet. The Loddiges family managed one of the most notable of the eighteenth and nineteenth century plant nurseries that traded in and introduced exotic plants into European gardens. The nursery rose to great prominence during the early nineteenth century under George Loddiges (1786-1846) who published in his serial numbers of The Botanical Cabinet 2000 coloured plates of rare plants introduced into its hothouses and gardens from around the world, and built the largest hothouse in the world to display the best collection of palms and orchids in Europe.
