Fine rare original large folio plates of Flowers of the Garden from John Hill's best work entitled Eden, Or, A Compleat Body of Curious and Useful Gardening, which were occasionally issued hand-coloured as these were in 1757. A copy of the book containing 60 similar hand-coloured plates is currently for sale on the internet at $30,000 and in the US individual plates are for sale from $495 to $1,500.

It is rare that such a variety of these plates is available on the internet, especially at these modest prices, so don't miss the opportunity to purchase at least one of them!

All our prints are Originals. They are NOT modern reproductions or electronic copies. Images may exaggerate blemishes and alter colours. The size given is of the sheet overall, unless otherwise stated, which is the image shown including margins.

I endeavour to mention any damage but please note that the images, which are of the actual items on sale, should be viewed in conjunction with the written descriptions. If you have any questions I will be happy to hear from you by email
