Item Description: . London: William Smith; William S. Orr, 1843-1844-[1849]., 1849. 5 works in 6 volumes. 4to., (11 x 9 5/8 inches). Illustrated throughout with 298 magnificent lithographed hand-coloured plates (some occasional insignificant spotting). Modern FINE binding of half green morocco gilt by Bayntun of Bath (spines evenly faded to brown, corners a bit rubbed). Provenance: Attractive 20th-century oriental style bookplate on the front paste-down of each volume "Books and Art bring us to Life". A FINE AND ATTRACTIVE SET OF LOUDEN'S CELEBRATED "LADIES' FLOWER GARDEN" and "BRITISH WILD FLOWERS". First edition, second printing of "Ornamental Annuals" first printed in 1840 and with 48 plates; first edition of "Ornamental Perennials" (2 volumes), with 90 plates; second edition of "Ornamental Greenhouse Plants" , with 42 plates; and first edition, second printing of "Bulbous Plants", first printed in 1840, and with 58 plates. Together with the second edition of "British Wild Flowers", first published in 1846, and with 60 plates. Married to the indefatigable and permanently broke landscape gardener John Loudon: "Jane Loudon worked closely with her husband on his "Gardener's Magazine". Embarrassed about how little she knew about plants when they married, she attended lectures in London given by the botanist John Lindley, and wrote up her notes as articles. During the 1830s and early 1840s she accompanied her husband on tours through England and into Scotland. She served as his amanuensis, recording his observations about kitchen gardens, conservatories, and great houses and their grounds, as he recommended improvements and endeavoured to promote a taste for gardening as art. When production of her husband's "Arboretum" (1838) saddled the family with debts of £10,000, Jane Loudon turned again to authorship, and tapped the ready Victorian market for books popularizing horticulture, botany, and natural history. "Instructions in Gardening for Ladies" (1840) was hugely successful; 1350 copies were sold on the day of publication alone. "The Ladies' Flower-Garden of Ornamental Annuals" (1840), the first in a much-reprinted series of informative illustrated books, was followed by others about bulbs, greenhouse plants, and perennials. Jane Loudon also brought information about the natural system of plant classification to popular audiences, in "The First Book of Botany . for Schools and Young Persons" (1841) and "Botany for Ladies" (1842). Identifying with readers who had little or no science education" (DNB).

Item Description: London William Smith -1849, 1834. Five works bound in 6 volumes, 4to (27 x 22cm.), first editions of Ornamental Perrenials & Ornamental Greenhouse plants, 303 (of 304) hand-coloured lithograph plates (47+95+58+60+42), occasional light spotting, original green cloth gilt, pictorial vignettes to spine and upper covers, spines faded to tan, neat repairs to extremities, a very good set. An attractive set including two first editions of Loudon's popular botanical works, containing a wealth of handsome hand-coloured lithographs. Loudon began her literary career with a strange futuristic novel entitled The Mummy (1827), and only began to write botanical works after her marriage to and work alongside John Loudon, the horticultural publisher and writer. Aware that the abundance of technical terms in horticultural books were off-putting to new gardeners, particularly women, she went about making gardening an accessible recreational activity. A self-taught artist, Loudon ranks as one of the most successful female botanical illustrators. Her artistic style, which involved grouping flowers to form delicate bouquets, though unusual for the time was immediately accepted among gardeners. Her attractive illustrations, known for their bright colour, became extremely sought after and were often imitated in designs for decorative products. Nissen BBI 1253, 1237, 1235, 1233, 1236.

Item Description: William Smith, London, 1846. 4to. (10 3/4 x 8 inches). 60 hand-coloured lithographed plates. Contemporary green straight grain morocco, covers elaborately bordered in gilt with a central gilt floral decoration, spine with raised bands in six compartments, lettered in the second, the others with a repeat overall decoration in gilt, glazed yellow endpapers, gilt edges First edition of Mrs. Loudon's celebrated British Wild Flowers, here in a lovely contemporary binding. The sixty hand coloured plates depict some 350 species of flowering "British plants which are at once common and ornamental, as it is intended principally for the use of Ladies taking country walks, who may wish to know the names of flowers they meet with in the fields and hedgerows, and some particulars respecting them" (publisher's advertisement). Jane Loudon first began her series of popular botanical works in 1838 with the intention of alleviating the debt incurred by her husband, the renowned botanist, gardener, and horticultural writer John Loudon, whom she met after the publication of her best-selling novel The Mummy, Tales for the Twenty Second Century. Having had no prior training in botany, she first learned about horticulture after her marriage, when she assisted her husband with his Encyclopedia of Gardening (1834). Taking a less traditional and more generally accessible approach to the subject, Loudon published her first gardening book, Instructions in Gardening for Ladies, in 1838. She followed this with a series of five titles, including the present work. "Loudon developed a simple formula for [her] works, combining a brief text with charming illustrations, an arrangement that appealed to her audience. For each plant a brief botanical description was provided, including its common name in English, its order and genus . some historical notes, and instructions regarding its cultivation . The illustrations to British Wild Flowers are enormously attractive" (Oak Spring Flora). The first edition of this work is greatly preferred over the later editions, as it is superior in terms of the quality of the hand colouring and printing of the plates.

Robinson's condemnation of this style as rote and wasteful was highly controversial and yet his vision of gardens based upon flowing arrangements of locally adapted winter-hardy plants eventually triumphed and has proved the most enduring' [see Darke]. *** This Signed Limited Issue is very rare : not in Cambridge University Library, and not in the Bodleian Library.
