From: Curtis’s botanical magazine
London, 1827, plate 2748. Hand-coloured engraving by C. M. Curtis (botanist) (sheet 297 x 230 mm with folds). Completed with original description

The first and most important botanical magazine made up of 'figures' of plants and short descriptions. Provides a storehouse of exotics, paralleling the indigenous plants … (Hunt). A delightful work pictorially, never excelled as a periodical, most carefully coloured and a source of lasting interest and information (G. Dunthorne).

Started by William Curtis in 1787 publication still continues. The Curtis Botanical Magazine is the longest running publication of its kind.


Large 8vo., 11 1/2" x 9 1/16" overall measurement, large fold-out copperplate engraving, delicately hand-colored, minor offsetting right side, several light fold lines from binding, excellent condition, published in London.

William Curtis began publication of the Botanical Magazine in February 1787 and it continued almost without interruption for 160 years. The images were engraved and hand-coloured by many artists including Sydenham Edwards, William Graves, James Sowerby, John Curtis, William Jackson Hooker, W.H. Fitch, Matilda Smith, Lillian Snelling and Stella Rose Craig. The plates are known for their fine detail and delicate hand coloring. The prints are all copper engravings to Volume 70, then continue with stone or zinc lithography until the introduction of color printing in 1948. It is the longest-running botanical magazine and was entirely hand colored until 1948. Even now, after all this time of living with Curtis prints, we are still left in awe by their beauty. Each single measures approximately 5 1/2 inches wide by 9 inches long or 11 1/2 inches wide by 9 1/16 . Prints are accompanied by the relevant original descriptive text.

Curtis Botanical Magazine 1787-1840

Tijdschriften met botanische illustraties in kleur. Dat is Curtis's Botanical Magazine. Het werd op 1 februari 1787 door William Curtis voor het eerst gepubliceerd onder de naam The Botanical Magazine. Met het blad richtte hij zich op opvallende, exotische en ongebruikelijke planten. Tot zijn dood in 1799 publiceerde Curtis veertien delen van het tijdschrift. In 1799 nam Curtis' vriend John Sims de verantwoordelijkheid op zich. Om zijn vriend te eren doopte hij het tijdschrift om in Curtis's Botanical Magazine. Sims was verantwoordelijk voor het tijdschrift van 1801 tot 1807 (deel 15 tot 26). Belangrijkste illustrator voor zowel Curtis als Sims was Sydenham Edwards. In 1826 werd William Jackson Hooker redacteur van het blad. Hij verzorgde zowel de teksten als de illustraties van het tijdschrift.
