PRATT, ANNE - Wild Flowers

London, The Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. 1857, First Edition. Cloth (Hardcover], 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. Ill.: Pratt, Anne. Book, 2 Vols.

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.
