Two albums of watercolors of British wildflowers and garden flowers
Chetwode, 1838-1840 & 1841-1873 - These delightful albums contain 142 finely executed full-page watercolors of British flowers. The artist, evidently Eliza Gauntlett, who has signed the first volume, has meticulously captioned each flower giving the place where it was found, often with the date. Extensive manuscript notes on the facing page for each flower provide the scientific and common name and characteristics of the plant. Provenance: Eliza Gauntlett, presumably the artist, with her signature dated Chetwode, April 1838, in the first volume. 142 watercolor drawings of British wildflowers and garden flowers, each with a facing page of text. Two volumes. Quarto. Contemporary half roan. Rubbed, text block somewhat loose. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
