"As is the case with many other rare and sought-after species of plant and animal, Madagascar is one of the world's prime locations for orchids, which make up the largest family of flowering plants on the island. Madagascar is home to nearly one thousand different species of orchids -- which make up nearly ten percent of the island's flora -- nearly nine hundred of them endemic. Orchids are found in almost every habitat on the island, from the mountains to the coasts, and this field guide -- the first of its kind, fully illustrated with color photographs and packed with details to aid identification -- is an invaluable tool for researchers and ecotourists visiting the island."--Balogh International

A very Victorian passion : the orchid paintings of John Day, 1863 to 1888 by Phillip Cribb( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Day (1824-1888) was an eminent English orchid grower and collector who flourished from the early 1850s until the late 1880s. From 1862 he not only grew orchids but also painted watercolours of the plants in his own collection at High Cross, Tottenham, and in other major collections in and around Victorian London. His paintings of over 2,300 orchids bound in 53 'scrapbooks', constitute a unique archive recording these beautiful flowers, introduced into England from around the world when orchidmania was at its zenith." "Day's paintings are not only beautiful: they are also of real scientific value. Day often sent pressed flowers and copies of his paintings to Professor Heinrich Reichenbach of Hamburg, who subsequently deemed many of them new to science. Day's illustrations, therefore, are often of the 'type' plant - the plant upon which the new name was based." "The Day archive is used daily by scientists and horticulturists at Kew but has never been published or available more widely. It is an incomparable record of the introduction of novelties from around the world - particularly the New World, India and the Far East - the early hybrids and spectacular species that have been lost to horticulture."--Jacket
