Beautiful 1852 reissue of Flora's Lexicon of the Language of Flowers originally published in 1839. The book is made up of poetry, illustrations and a small essay on each flower. There are several gorgeously illustrated book plates within, however, the dust jacket no longer remains with the piece. Overall, for a book nearly 170 years old, this in fantastic condition! There is some very slight damage to the external spine, but not enough to be noticeable. Inside, the book has some staining and the pages are wavy from past water damage. There is no mold, and all of the pages are accounted for and intact.
Please take a look at our photos for a closer look! Thank you.
