    Select Orchidaceous Plants.

    With Notes on Culture By Benjamin S. Williams
    First edition of the first series of Warner and Williams's richly illustrated large-format work on orchid species, one of "the most glorious iconographic orchid books produced during the height of orchid collecting in the nineteenth century" (Long, Flora Illustrata, p.8). The Florist and Pomologist was particularly pleased with Warner's work, noting that it constituted "a very handsome volume…in every way suitable to be laid on any drawing-room table" of any lover of flowers (Hogg, 1867) and the success of the first series led to the publication of a second (1865-75) as well as a third series (1877-91).
