Antique chromo lithograph of the Scentless Mayweed, 1879

Item number: 5.22

This bright coloured and detailed chromolithographic print of the Scentless Mayweed (Matricaria inodora) originates from the first edition (1879) of a series of botanical books called 'Familiar Wild Flowers’ by E. Hulme.


This fine 143-year-old illustration is in excellent condition and comes with a pre-cut high quality matboard with an ivory coloured top layer. The matboard is acid-free, protecting the print. 


Frederick Edward Hulme (1841-1909), a naturalist and artist, was born in England. In 1870 he was appointed art and drawing master at Marlborough College, which was around the time he published Familiar Wild Flowers, his best known work.
