"Poire Joseph Staquet," Alexandre Bivort, 1857. Active in various horticultural societies in Belgium and France, Bivort published two works, "Album de Pomologie," and "Annales de Pomologie Belge et Etrangere," the work from which our plates come. These hand-colored lithographs remain the classic reference on Belgian fruit of the era, and Bivort's primary interest was in pears. It is interesting to note that he was so dedicated to realistic portrayals that he sometimes depicted imperfections.
