Item Description: London William Smith -1849, 1834. 5 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 ttractive set including two first editions of loudon's popular botantical 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: . 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: William S Orr & Co, LONDON, 1846. Cloth. Book Condition: Poor. Jane Loudon (illustrator). 2nd Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. A poor copy of this beautiful work with 60 hand coloured plates. Classed as poor because the title page is missing; the binding is poor - in marked plain cloth and beginning to detach; and there is a little marking internally. The pagination matches our other 2nd edition copy so this is presumed as second, dated to 1846. The plates are in good condition - there is some brown spotting to edges, and around 3 have a darkened section, again at the edge not affecting the flower image (we have noticed only one plate with a light mark affecting the flower). All have tissue guards - one guard is torn and one has a small hole - most guards have marking. A few text pages have a little marking and p 117 has a repaired tear to the top margin. The final index page has a small hole at the top. This copy would be well worth rebinding. Bookseller Inventory # 031483

Goldring. *** Very attractive Signed Limited Issue of the best edition of Robinson's important and highly influential book, first published in 1870. The Fifth Edition of 1895 [the ordinary copies were not issued until 1903] 'best represents the book in its mature and fully illustrated form', and is profusely illustrated throughout with 'exquisite line drawings and engravings' from paintings by Alfred Parsons [see The Wild Garden : edited Rick Darke]. *** 'When The Wild Garden first appeared, the prevailing taste in British and European Continental garden design was for meticulously contrived displays of tropical annuals newly introduced from South America. 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.
