By: Alexander Marshal
192 pages, 140 colour illustrations
The exquisite Florilegium of Alexander Marshal is the only surviving example of a flower-book painted by an English artist in the seventeenth century, and is an exceptional work of art. Compiled by season, this publication uses Marshal's exquisite 'plant portrait' watercolours to take the reader on an artistic tour of a year in the garden of a seventeenth century English horticulturalist; from the crocuses and fritillaries of early spring to autumnal gourds and chinese lanterns.
The text of this book has been abridged from "The Florilegium of Alexander Marshal" by Prudence Leith-Ross and Henrietta McBurney (2000).
