Garden glory: The finest fruits and vegetables of 19th-century illustration

Originally published between 1850 and 1895, Album Vilmorin: Les Plantes potagères (The Vegetable Garden) brought garden glory to the printed page. Featuring 46 magnificent color plates, the book was a marvel of agro-botanic iconography and a triumph for its publishers, the illustrious Vilmorin-Andrieux & Cie, the most important seed company of the 19th century.

In this new edition, TASCHEN reprints The Vegetable Garden illustrations with utmost accuracy and care. A sure favorite for cooks, gardeners, and anyone rejoicing in the great outdoors, the edition brims with wholesome pleasure as much as expert botanical understanding. From gleaming eggplants to the plumpest strawberries, these vivid plates are testimony not only to the skill of the original artists, most of whom trained as artist-naturalists at the famous Jardin des Plantes, but also to the beauty of simple sensory pleasures — texture, freshness, and flavor.
