Beautiful orchid chromolithographs from Frederick Sander’s Reichenbachia is considered by many to be the greatest illustrated work on orchids ever published. The publication, originally conceived and produced as a series of plates and descriptions was noted by Reinikka (1972) as “perhaps the greatest monument” to Henry Frederick Conrad Sander. The orchids were painted life-size.
