Six 18th Century Botanical Engravings, P.J. Buchoz


A set of six of exceptional quality 18th century hand-coloured engravings

Buchoz, Pierre Joseph. Collection précieuse et enluminée des fleurs les plus belles et les plus curieuses, qui se cultivent tant dans les jardins de la Chine, que dans ceux de l'Europe  Paris: Lacombe, 1776-79.


Why we like them

Beautifully hand-coloured, these exquisite pictures will adorn the most elaborate or minimalist interiors.


Buchoz was the first European to copy the oriental style and aimed this work not just at naturalists and painters, but also at porcelain and textile manufacturers. The first volume, in which the highly decorative plates are captioned in Chinese characters, is devoted to flowers native to China, many featuring birds, butterflies and insects, with pale blue skies and rocky backgrounds. The second volume illustrates in a similar style flowers grown in the gardens of Europe.
