"The colour of the most lovingly pressed flowers fade but here, captured in watercolour and held in all their glory, are wildflowers as bright as on the day they were picked. One spring and summer in 1873, a Victorian Papa made a perfect keepsake for his children."
A Victorian Flower Album is an exquisitely faithful rendering of flowers, the Latin, as well as the English names, was recorded for Terry's children's improvement. There is no arrangement by species or by alphabet; we see them just as they were brought into the house each day.Publishing Details
