Several hundred photographs of flowers and vegetables by a Charles Jones were purchased by London dealer Sean Sexton at an antique fair in 1981. No firm biographical information has come to light. The artist's file contains a letter from Kew Gardens indicating that a Charles Jones worked at the institution in 1893, this supplied by Sexton. There is no hard evidence linking this particular Jones with the author of the photographs. One drawback is the fact that Jones is a common name in England. Refer Granta 52. Quoted in Sotheby's Photographic Catalogue, April 97: (ca. 1868 - 1959)
