Book Details

HULME (F. Edward). Suggestions in Floral Design.1878

London: Cassell & Company, First edition, folio (375 x 275 mm), 52pp., additional chromolithographed title page and 52 chromolithographed plates beautifully printed in gold and colours by Dupuy & Fils, Lithographers Paris, text and plates clean and bright, orig. publisher's cloth, lettered in gilt, slightly soiled, small tear to lower joint. "The greater number of the illustrations have already been privately used as indications to pupils of what we consider correct treatments of floral forms, and it is in the hope that they may be thus useful to a larger circle that they are now published. To this end they have all been kept bold in form, simple in colour, and of a size that should present no difficulties to any student desirous of reproducing them; and we may further mention that none of the suggestions are mere reproductions or modifications of designs that have already done service commercially. All have been prepared for the special purpose of this work"—Introduction.
