James Bateman THE ORCHIDACEAE OF MEXICO AND GUATEMALA c1975 Limited Facsimile Edition 19th Century Work of Botany South America Illustrated Color Plates Horticulture Art Flowers Plants Elephant Folio

Title: The Orchidaceae of Mexico and Guatemala, by James Bateman, London 1837-1842
Author: James Bateman - James Bateman was a British landowner and accomplished horticulturist. He developed Biddulph Grange after moving there around 1840, from nearby Knypersley Hall in Staffordshire, England. He created the famous gardens at Biddulph with the aid of his friend and painter of seascapes Edward William Cooke. From 1865–70 he was president of the North Staffordshire Field Club, the large local club which researched in local natural history and folklore.

He was a collector of and scholar on orchids, President of the North Staffordshire Field Society, and served on the Royal Horticultural Society's Plant Exploration Committee. He especially loved rhododendrons and azaleas. He had a number of notable sons who grew up at Biddulph Grange, including the painter Robert Bateman.

Bateman was "a collector and scholar on orchids," and "was one of the early developers of orchid culture. He sponsored expeditions to Mexico and South America enabling collectors to gather rare specimens. He published three lavish books about orchids. He pioneered "cool orchid cultivation" which enabled the Odontoglossum to be cultivated in England, replicating the cool arid climate of the cloud forests in Central America where these exotic flowers are found. Walter Hood Fitch, (1817–1892)...was employed by Bateman to create the paintings for his magnificent orchid books...exceedingly rare, A Monograph of Odontoglossum, is composed of thirty large scale hand-coloured lithographs."
