"In 1787 William Curtis founded the Botanical Magazine, a journal containing hand-coloured engravings of plants with accompanying text, which is still published today. It is now the longest-running horticultural or botanical periodical and is probably the oldest journal containing coloured illustrations still in production. In the last 213 years, over 11,000 illustrations have been published. With the exception of orchids, there are more plates of rhododendrons in the Botanical Magazine than any other group of plants."--Jacket
