From Dewey's Pocket Series - Colored from Nature. Out of Rochester, New York, this color plate was made and bound with other fruit & flower plates and used by nursery salesman to visually represent the 'product' they were selling. "In the early period the plates were usually produced by stencil and hand coloring,.... Chromolithography gradually replaced the hand-finished plates and became the primary medium by the mid-1880's." - Reese. Text; "One of the hardiest variety of Blackberries. ripens gradually like Lawton. Sweet; unsurpassed by any other Blackberry, and the most popular of any grown." 18th-19th Century Subjects , Natural History - Botanicals , Other Fruits and Vegetables
