Title : Seven plates from Pomona Britannica..
Map maker : BROOKSHAW, George.
Date : London, Bensley and son, 1817.
Size : 10.0 x 8.1 inches. / 25.5 x 20.5 cm.
Colouring : In original colours.

Description :Seven aquatint and stipple engraved plates of fruits by George Brookshaw (1751-1823) from his "Pomona Britannica, or, a Collection of the most esteemed fruits at present cultivated in this country" vol. II. . London: T. Bensley and Son, printed in 1817..

The Pomona was first issued in parts from 1804 to 1808 (apart from two plates dated 1812) and, if Wood's hypothesis is correct, is the first resumption by Brookshaw using his own name, as well as the first public indication of his new métier. The first edition of the complete work was published in 1812 and was dedicated to the Prince Regent, Brookshaw's most distinguished former patron. Many of the specimens were taken from the Royal Gardens at Hampton Court and Kensington Gardens. Other gardens mentioned in the text are those of the Princess of Wales at Blackheath, the Duke of York at Oatlands, the Duke of Marlborough at Sion, Dr. Lettsom at Camberwell, Lord Anson at Moor Park and Benjamin Goldsmid at Roehampton.

Condition : Seven aquatint plates printed in colour and finished by hand. Together with title page and 2pp. Paper size : 340 x 280mm.
