HULME, F. EDWARD. - Suggestions in Floral Design.

London, Cassell [1878]. Folio modern half morocco (original decorated cloth front panel bound in at the end); 52pp and 52 chromolitho plates (including the title and end leaf). Some minor flaws: a stain in the bottom margin of the last couple of leaves of text, a couple of rumpled page edges and repairs to tissue guards; still rather good, clean and unfoxed. ¶ Hulme is mostly remembered as an art-botanist and ornamental encyclopaedist and perhaps his name has been blackened by dreary, usually incomplete, sets of 'Familiar Wild Flowers' choking the bookshops of the world. His skill as designer has been unjustly neglected and this, his most exciting book, makes that clear. The influence of his teacher and colleague Christopher Dresser is obvious in the forms and flat bright colours but that is no curse. The accompanying text is plain and helpful and the plates are beautifully printed by Dupuy of Paris.
