Synopsis: In this wonderfully unusual work Kate Greenaway provides an enchantingly illustrated glossary of the language of flowers. A fascinating insight into a bygone era, when the gift of a Tamsy was a declaration of war, and a Garden Daisy meant 'I share your sentiments'. Eighty two beautifully illustrated colour pages. Kate Greenwaway (1846-1901) is one of the most popular children's book illustrators of all time. Edmund Evans produced her first book in 1879, which sold out resulting in triumph and gaining Greenaway her reputation. She has enchanted people, young and old, for over one hundred years with her watercolour illustrations of sweet, charming eighteenth century children with their quaint costumes and idyllic scenes.

Product Description: Charming reproduction of rare volume by famed 19th-century illustrator includes abundantly illustrated list of over 200 plants and their figurative equivalents ? tulip = fame; blue violet = faithfulness, etc. Selection of flower-related verses, including "To a Mountain Daisy" by Robert Burns, appears at back of book. 85 full-color illustrations.
