The Country Flowers Of A Victorian Lady, Robinson, Fanny
8 The Country Flowers Of A Victorian Lady
Robinson, Fanny: Harpercollins Publishers; Scranton, Pennsylvania 2000 006019703X / 9780060197032
First American Edition: First Printing Hard Cover Fine in Fine Dust Jacket: 8 x 9.25 in.: 96 pages 

007117007117: Dustjacket now protected by a new Brodart Mylar Cover. Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. "Over the past 150 years Fanny Robinson's "Book of Memory, " as she called it, has been enjoyed as a treasured heirloom by her family. Now, for the first time, her beautiful work -- arguably the most exquisite collection of Victorian flower paintings in existence -- can be appreciated by all. Fanny's exceptional book combines elegant watercolors with evocative poetry that is finely illuminated in the manner of a medieval Book of Hours. Using the symbolic Language of Flowers, she invests each flower grouping with subtle and often highly romantic meanings -- indeed, it is thought that the volume was intended as a lasting tribute to a lost lover. In her fascinating commentary on the paintings, Gill Saunders, a senior curator in the Department of Prints, Drawings and Paintings at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, explains the intriguing floral symbolism and takes the reader on a delightful journey into Fanny Robinson's leisured and cultivated world of flower, pen and brush.
