4to. 237 x 190 mm. 250 full-page watercolour drawings of flowers, each with ms. title in Latin & German & number. with 57 pp. manuscript in German containing a brief description of each flower & 5 pp. manuscript index. 19th century bds. (bit worn, a few spots of paper adhesion on first watercolour, lacking flyleaf & probably a manuscript title). An appealing collection of competently executed original botanical watercolours including depictions of begonias, irises, salvia, passionflowers, amaryllis, lobelia, paeony, California poppy, hibiscus, azalea, trillium,.browallia, &c. Apparently part of a larger work as the watercolours are numbered from 6201 to 6450, but unfortunately we are unable to offer any information regarding the author or the work, including whether or not it was ever published.
