Paris, Lambert, 1835. Small folio (27.0 x 20.7 cm). Hand-coloured engraved title; 24 stipple-engraved plates, printed in colour and finished by hand. Contemporary quarter calf over marbled boards. Spine with gilt floral ornaments and title. Marbled endpapers.

A very rare work on flowers and flower bouquets by the botanical artist Henriette Antoinette Vincent née Rideau du Sal (1786-1834), who studied painting in Paris under the tutelage of the esteemed flower painters and French court artists Gerard van Spaendonck (1746-1822) and Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840). This work is certainly as beautiful and detailed as her much-acclaimed Études de Fleurs et de Fruits (see Dunthorne, and Blunt), only much rarer. Uncut, with the widest possible margins. Provenance: on the front pastedown the armorial bookplate of Henry Rogers Broughton, 2nd Baron Fairhaven, whose library was one of the grandest natural history libraries in the United Kingdom. Extremities rubbed; a few marginal spots; otherwise, a very good, clean and complete copy. Blunt, The Art of Botanical Illustration, pp. 181-182; Dunthorne 322. Neither in Nissen (who lists three other works by Vincent, underscoring its rarity), nor in the Plesch library.
