About this Item

Two Folio broadside sheets, letterpress printed on one side only. The first appears to be a proof for the second one, as a quotation is supplied in manuscript at the head of this sheet and on the second the quote is typeset. The quotation is by Bernardin de St. Pierre - "Les Prairies seront votre école, les fleurs vos Alphabets, et Flore votre Institutrice." Below the title are twenty-six verses of charming poetry, each verse representing a letter of the alphabet - Arum, Buttercup, Cowslip and so on. In fine condition apart from one having been removed from an album, therefore remains of old glue on verso. I have not been able the find anything definite on the history of this private press. These two printed broadsides are very well-handled so it is very hard to think of them as sole productions. KENT EPHEMERA KENT EPHEMERA BROADSIDES BOTANY 19TH CENTURY KENT.
