About

This is a wonderful pair of Volkamer early 18th century engravings of lemon trees and the spectacular gardens in which they were grown. The engravings retain their crisp hand-coloring with little fading. The folios are custom-framed and beautifully French matted. One folio is in very good overall condition; the other has water damage which, possibly, occurred at the time of coloration as there is very little bleeding of the water colors. The price point reflects the water staining to the one folio.
