Imperial Edition, No. 27 of 100 Vol. 1. Tab 39.
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.
