Description From Robert John Thornton's celebrated work 'The Temple of Flora' originally published in 1799 in London. 'The Temple of Flora' is considered to be one of the finest collections of botanical illustrations ever created. It is a rare and treasured book owned by very few collectors and libraries. Individual original plates when found at auction fetch several thousand dollars apiece. The New York Times Store charges $1,200 for a single reprint ( not an original ) without a frame.
