Choice Bulbs, Fall Planting. Tulips [etc.]

[Rochester, N.Y. Vredenburg & Co.; United Litho. & Printing Co., circa 1901-11].

Eight panel, chromolithograph nursery catalogue (21.5 x 14 cm. folded; 43 x 56 cm. opened), eight plates mounted on board, hinged and backed in black cloth. Illustrated. A catalogue of flower bulbs, issued by an unnamed nursery. Narcissus or Daffodils, Tulips, Crocus, Hyacinths, Six Superb Lilies and Iris Kaempferi or Japanese Iris are featured. As is often the case with chromolithographed nursery catalogues, the individual pages were printed at different times and by different printers, though Vredenburg and United Litho. had been rolled together into one by the time this catalogued was issued. Notable about Vredenburg & Co., was the involvement in the firm of Mrs. Vredenburg (neé Mima Balmain). She acted as both Secretary and Treasurer of the firm, and invested some of the proceeds in thousands of acres of Florida land. Very light soil to a few plates, otherwise near fine.

Price: $350.00
