Description
In 1851, Benjamin Samuel Williams published a series of articles under the title “Orchids for the Millions.” Together with Robert Warner, Williams went on to write his magnum opus, The Orchid Album, published in 11 volumes from 1882 to 1897. The illustrations—hand-tinted lithographs on royal quarto pages measuring 10 by 12 inches—are by John Nugent Fitch, a printmaker who often worked for the Linnean Society. For this set of notecards, four exceptional plants were selected from a copy of The Orchid Album in the collection of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
Oncidium loxense
Lælia grandis tenebrosa
Miltonia spectabilis
Cattleya labiata foleyana
