Victorian Floral Illustrations

By Carol Belanger Grafton


Visually compellling and highly detailed Victorian era engravings of flowers and plants. 344 handsome and botanically accurate wood engravings selected from two classic Victorian publications: Paxton's Flower Garden and The Natural History of Plants.

Includes exquisite renderings of a broad spectrum of plant forms: baobab tree, quaking grass, winged pea, and many other unusual plants. Each illustration is accompanied by an identifying caption that provides the scientific name and a brief description of the plant, its native region, and if it is a flower, the colour of the blossoms.
