Flower drawings, 1882

 Item — Box: 2, Folder: 8a
Call Number: MSS 6, Series I

Scope and Contents

Consists of two graphite drawings by Helen Blanche Pease within the following published work: Hulme, F. Edward. Flower Painting in Water Colours. London: Cassell & Co., [1881?]. The front endleaf is inscribed: Helen Blanche Pease, 1 Jany. 1882. Hulme authored several series of this title, circa 1880-1885. The present volume appears to be the first series. The title pages and other preliminaries have been neatly excised in this copy. It retains all 20 chromolithographed plates of common flowers. Helen appears to have taken minimal interest in the volume; she has copied in graphite but two specimens (the crocus and the Eschscholzia) on blank leaves facing the illustrated plates.
