Excerpts from the preface of the book reads as follows: .First, the designs - all the flowers having been copied from Nature's Own Book, by Mrs. Fitzgibbon - then the subsequent grouping and lithographing on stone by her own hand, and finally the colouring of each separate plate - a gigantic effort to be executed by one person. With a patriotic pride in her native land, Mrs. F. was desirous that the book should be entirely of Canadian production, without any foreign aid, and thus far her design has been carried out; whether successfully or not, remains for the public to decide. . And finally it was at last agreed that the Book of Canadian Wild Flowers should be the work of Mrs. Fitzgibbon, and the descriptions of the plants as delineated by her hand, should be selected and adapted to suit the subjects of the Plates from Mrs. Traill's MS.Toronto, December, 1868.
