‘Flowers Personified’ was truly remarkable work of botanical art in the mid-19th-century. Completed by J.J. Grandville, this work featured dozens of full-page color engravings of plants and anthropomorphized flowers. First published in 1847, the second part of this work was ‘Modern Botany for Ladies’ which was a work dedicated to describing flowers, how to plant and care for them, descriptions of specific species of plants, and charming poems and narratives representing these flowers.

 

This English work comes from the French text of Raban, or Count Feolix, in his ‘Botanique des dames et horticulture des dames’. According to Reese, this work is “the most elaborate book of its kind from the gift book era.”
