Title: Wild Flowers
Description: London, The Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. 1857, First Edition. Cloth (Hardcover], 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall. Ill.: Pratt, Anne. Book, 2 Vols. Volume 1 with 192 pages night blue endpapers and 96 full page coloured plates, text with a very occational mark or foxing. Volume 2 has the same no. of pages and colour plates.

Anne Pratt (1806-93), a grocer's daughter from Kent and author of Common Things of the Seaside and Our Native Songsters, illustrated all of her own botanical books, and in the spirit of the Victorian Naturalists, successfully merged the study of botany with romantic flower-lore. Wild Flowers is Miss Pratt's first botanical work. In 1855, she produced her hallmark work on British Flora: The Flowering Plants and Ferns of Great Britain, (Blunt p. 236). A handsone little set with fine illustrations. Fine/No Jacket.
