Dear David,

Allow me to thank you for sharing this true treasure with all of us at aroid-l!   Tony AND Susan must be VERY happy aroidophiles today!   This illustrates the wonderful Botanical art that was done ''back in the day'', 1898 in this case.   The only other example of art in this quality which comes to mind at this moment (it is early here in WPB), and which were created in the past few years are the color illustrations done by the masters at Kew, which illustrate Peter Boyce`s fantastic book on the genus Arum!   As I have said time and time again, even if you are NOT an Arum person, this small book is well worth the investement (under U.S.$100.00?) just for the art!

Good Growing!

Julius
