Design History:
This design was part of the original series of forty-eight designs completed by October 1931 and was also included in later reprintings. The example images were taken with the same camera, but under different lighting conditions. The printing techniques and ink colors of Version I and Version II copies are closely similar, but the Version I example illustrated here has toned paper. Both have pale gray bokashi in the lower background. Version III copies typically do differ somewhat in printing technique and ink color from earlier version copies, as is evident here.

Species Illustrated:
Nasturtium, Tropaeolum hybrid varieties.
