About this book

The first edition of the Lindenia, a monumental work in the history of literature on orchids, was printed in French in Belgium between 1885 and 1906 in the form of a monthly review. The exceptional drawings depict species gathered in tropical forests and raised in the greenhouses of collectors. The text that accompanies each plate gives the Latin assignment of each species together with bibliographical references. This is the first complete English version.
