Jean Linden (1817-1898) was a famed "orchid hunter”. He spent many years searching for orchids in their native habitat before importing back to Belgium and opening a nursery with his son, in Brussels. This led to Belgium being known as a dominant force in the cultivation of orchids.

Together, they published this fabulous collection of orchids, ‘ Iconographie des Orchidées’. Consisting of two parts, the first series was 10 volumes published from 1885-1894 with the second comprised of seven volumes. 

I acquired it and others at the estate of two highly regarded college professors who after retirement in the 1990s turned their love for collecting into a prosperous antique business selling in Round Top as well as across the South.
They were avid book collectors, orchid enthusiasts, and custom framers who expertly framed botanicals and birds from antique books and magazines.
