Some Flowers - Vita Sackville-West

Harry N. Abrams, 1993, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Small closed tear to the head of the spine, some very light marks to the lower panel. Text bright and tight.

Illustrated with colour line drawings. From the cover: “The author has selected blooms that are lovely in shape, colouring, marking, and texture — ‘flowers which painters have delighted, or should delight, to paint’ — and she shows a painterly sensitivity in the words she uses to depict them. Her delightful essays are a magical lesson in looking closely at flowers. The text is not only a series of poetic descriptions, it is also full of useful growing hints and suggestions as to the perfect places to plant each flower, advice that is, of course, still relevant today.
