Wild Flowers (Anne Pratt)


Wild Flowers

Anne Pratt

Published by Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1853

Anne Pratt (1806-93), a grocer’s daughter from Kent and author of Common Things of the Seaside and Our Native Songsters, illustrated all of her botanical books in the spirit of the Victorian Naturalists and successfully merged the study of botany with romantic flower-lore. Wild Flowers is Miss Pratt’s first botanical work. In 1855, she produced her The Flowering Plants and Ferns of Great Britain. (Blunt p. 236). A good example of 19th education.
