A botanical publication which rivaled others of the era was REVUE HORTICOLE published in Paris France as a bimonthly founded in 1829 by the authors of “du Bon Jardinier”. The publishers had witnessed from personal experience that collectors of botanical art refused to buy folio pictures of unassuming plants but felt that they would subscribe to an octavo work which pictured the showy plants that filled their gardens; from this premise was born REVUE HORTICOLE - Journal D’horticulture. In addition to the botanical plates are line drawings, gardening advertisements and horticultural articles.
