After Bonpland returned from the expedition to South America with Humbolt, he obtained a position as botanist to the Empress Joséphine. Many exotic plants were then imported to chateau de la Malmaison and chateau de Navarre (Close to Évreux). In 1813, together with Pierre-Joseph Redouté, he published this series of 64 plates, of which 2 represent cacti and 1 a cotyledon.
