Showing 1–16 of 26 results

Published from 1804 – 1812 by George Brookshaw, Pomona Britannica contains 90 aquatint engravings depicting 256 varieties of fruit cultivated in Britain. Plums, peaches, melons, apples, and grapes set against light cream or stoic brown backgrounds populate the folio. Brookshaw’s folio is intended to cultivate the tastes of higher-class gentlemen so that they might instruct their gardeners on implementing fashionable fruit varietals. Additionally, the engravings were intended to serve as instructive illustrations for botanists and pomologists, while also remaining aesthetic and enchanting as works of art. Pomona Britannica was described by S. T. Prideaux as “one of the finest colour plate books in existence.”
