The elegant pocket diary of the Flower series is an ideal place to note appointments and tasks. It is perpetual and therefore it can be used in any year and started at any moment. Some of the most beautiful illustrations of The Botanist (London, 1836-1842) were selected to decorate this diary. A collection of this 19th century botanical journal, is stored in the Bibliotheca Antiqua of the Aboca Museum in Sansepolcro.
The history of botany, with the popularisation of its most rare and precious aspects, has always been part of Aboca's vision. The Botanist was issued between 1836 and 1842 by Benjamin Maund, a renowned English botanist, and a member of the Linnean Society in London. These finely coloured lithographic prints were painted by some of the most skilled 19th century English painters and engravers.
The pocket diary is available in the following versions: purple flower Thunbergia grandiflora, and pink flower Passiflora kermesina.
