The exquisite and decorative work of Victorian piety, showing a love both of flowers and of the Scriptures, was complied by an army colonel who had experienced the heat of battle in the scorching Egyption sun. After a day's fighting, Lieutenant Colonel William McCheane returned to his tent and turned to his Bible and his watercolors. Despite the proximity of the Holy Land, he never went there, and he took as models for his drawings English garden plants with which he was familiar. This gives his drawings, which have never been published, a special charm. John Chancellor's scholarly and informative text considers botanical aspects as well as the symbolism and mythology of the plants, and detailed references are included which list the flowers and fruits mentioned in the Bible with scriptural references."; 11.10 X 8.80 X 0.50 inches; 64 pages.
