Groups of Flowers, Drawn and Accurately Coloured after Nature, with Full Directions for the Young Artist. WITH Six Birds, Accurately Drawn and Coloured after Nature WITH Groups of Fruit, Accurately Drawn and Coloured after Nature.
London: Thomas McLean, 1819. - 3 volumes in one. Folio, (14 ½ x 10 ½ inches). 18 lithographed plates, each in two states: one colored, and one uncolored (some spotting). Contemporary full green morocco gilt (some wear at extremities). Second edition, first published in 1817. Initially a cabinet-maker specializing in painted furniture decorated with borders of flowers, Brookshaw appears to have abandoned this career at about the same time as he parted company with his wife and began living with Elizabeth Stanton, and under the assumed name of G. Brown (c.1794-1804). During this time he earned a living as a teacher of flower-painting and on the proceeds of his painting manuals like this one. "However, Brookshaw's most important published work, which indeed is of some botanical significance, was his finely illustrated treatise on fruit growing, the Pomona Britannica, issued in parts from 1804-when he first resumed his own name-and as a single folio volume in 1812" (Lucy Wood for DNB). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
