The colouring of the plates is outstanding

A rare contribution towards the genus Pelargonium. Only two volumes were published with each 25 plates. Jakob Ernst von Reider was a Bavarian horticultural author and the editor of the 'Annalen der Blumisterei für Gartenbesitzer...' of which 12 volumes appeared between 1826 and 1836.
The Geraniaceae Family includes the genus Pelargonium and the genus Geranium. The geranium flowers are symmetrical while the pelargonium flowers are not. The pelargonium flowers have a nectary tube behind the petals, the geranium does not. The colouring of the plates is outstanding. First title with small repair.
