    The Victorians were passionate about flowers, both in their gardens and in art, and the period saw some of the most superb botanical journals ever published. This volume reproduces hand-coloured lithographs from one of the finest from the 1860s, The Floral Magazine, a collaboration between the botanical illustrator James Andrews and the Rev HH Dombrain. Each of the 95 plants is shown in a full-page reproduction, with Dombrain's text revealing the preoccupations, joys and setbacks of Victorian flower growers.
