BAKER, RICHARD T. - The Australian Flora in Applied Art. Part I The Waratah.
Sydney, Tech Museum 1915. Small quarto, very good in publisher's cloth; numerous colour & b/w illustrations. ¶ Part I is all published and apparently all Baker ever planned to publish. The book was part of his fervid campaign to have the Waratah made the national flower, and his chance to champion the designs of Lucien Henry which he had recovered from under a tub in a Surry Hills washhouse. It is a pity he never continued the series but he has produced probably Australia's most attractive book on applied arts. Lucien Henry's own pattern book remains unpublished, few of his realised designs survive .. this is about as close as we get.AUD 250.00 [Appr.: EURO 177.5 US$ 191.55 | £UK 153.25 | JP¥ 21303] Book number 7587
