Duke, J. (Birth and Death dates unknown)
“The Compleat Florist”, by J. Duke, was published in London in 1747, and contained one hundred beautifully hand colored plates. The plates from this work are charming compositions with intense original hand coloring. Each print contains the name of the plant, a description of the plant, the season in which it blooms, conditions it grows best in, and it’s growing habits. These plates are truly decorative works of art.
Prints from this publication are rare, and feature excellent original hand coloring.
