"This exquisite collection of plates represents Redouté's genius at its very height. The original folio edition of Les Lillacées (1802-1816), without doubt is considered to be Redouté's masterpiece and one of the finest botanical works ever produced...Redouté's lilies have remained comparatively unknown and, incredibly, have never before been reproduced in book form.

"This selection of 109 illustrations includes not only members of the Lily family, but also Iris and Amaryllis..." - publisher.
