Cacti


The chromolithographs below are by Mary Emily Eaton and are cut from the first edition of Nathaniel L. Britton and Joseph N. Rose's classic four-volume Cactaceae: Descriptions and Illustrations of Plants of the Cactus Family, published by the Carnegie Institute, Washington, 1919-1923.   The lithography is by A. Hoen & Co of Baltimore. The plates show light, even age toning, so they have an ivory cast and are not quite as bright as the photos suggest.

 Britton and Rose selected Mary Emily Eaton (1873-1961) as the illustrator for their magnum opus.  Trained as an artist in England, Eaton served as principal artist for the New York Botanical Garden, illustrating the Addisonia.  She also did illustations for the National Geographic Magazine and Contributions from the US National Herbarium.
