FAVORITE FLOWERS of GARDEN AND GREENHOUSE is a four-volume work, authored by Edward Step and edited by William Watson. D. Bois was the assistant curator of The Museum of Natural History in Paris France. He arranged the 316 chromolithographs. The botanicals were drawn and colored directly from living examples. The characteristic pose of each plant has been captured with an engaging sense of accuracy and overall vibrancy. Of particular interest is the floral presentation. In order that the flower structure could be perfectly understood, a vertical cross section shows the relative positions of the flower parts.
