Flowers of Shakespeare - Old Victorian Botanical Study - Timon of Athens


"The Flowers of Shakespeare" was a cloth bound book published in 1845 by Day & Hague, London, that was rich in hand painted illustrations and was a very indulgent book of its time.  Therefore  it was a past time to copy pages of this book in the mid to later Victorian era. This is one of those copies.  A very beautiful copy indeed.  All produced in sharpened pencils, paint and a touch of gilding here and there. I have photographed the back of the paper too where you can see the oil of the paint has created a shadow. Please do look at the details within the photographs.

Beautiful to frame or embroiderers to copy in stitch.
