From Collection Précieuse et Enluminée des fleurs les plus belles et les plus curieuses, qui se cultivent dans les jardins de la Chine que dans ceux de l'Europe.(A Rare, Illustrated Collection of the most Beautiful and Exotic Flowers, Grown in the Gardens of China as well as Europe), Pierre-Joseph Buchoz, Paris, 1776.
Pierre-Joseph Buchoz (1731-1807) was an 18th century naturalist who published prolifically. Though he never gained the recognition he sought for his scientific work, the composition and quality of these prints are comparable to the best natural history works of the period.
