Description: "There is a language little-known, lovers claim it as their own."
Facsimile of the 1913 original, consisting of hundreds of flower names and their symbolic meanings.

An essential guide for those of us who prefer the flowers to do the talking, but don't want to inadvertently send the wrong message.
For example, you could give your lady almond blossoms – meaning 'hope' – but don't ever give her almonds with them (even if they are sugarcoated), as they symbolise 'stupidity'!!

Illustrated throughout with beautiful watercolours and handwritten flower names and definitions.

Glazed pictorial boards with rounded corners in excellent condition. Pages are tightly bound and also in excellent condition. Neat gift inscription in blue ink on ffep.

Measures 15 cm × 12.5 cm (6″ × 5″). 16mo. Unpaginated.

Price: £6.50
