Artist: The artists who contributed to the volume included Peter Henderson, Philip Reinagle, Abraham Pether and Sydenham Edwards; Thornton himself was responsible for the illustration of the group of roses.Two artists were employed to realize Thornton's vision in this instance: the flower was painted by Reinagle, while the landscape artist Abraham Pether (1756-1812) did the moonlight

Several Techniques

It contains thirty plates which were produced by a variety of techniques, including aquatint, mezzotint, stipple, and line engraving. The impressions were printed in colour and afterwards finished by hand. During production, most of the plates were altered or added to from time to time, producing a different 'state' in each case; consequently, some plates have as many as four different states.
