A Collection of Flowers drawn after Nature, & disposed in an Ornamental & Picturesque Manner. [London, 1783-1798]

A botanical masterpiece of the eighteenth century by one of the most notable British botanical artists of the century. The exquisite plates show architectonic floral designs or botanical renditions. His interest was focused around the design possibilities of beautiful flowers and less in the accurate depiction. All of the plates are designed, etched and coloured by Edwards himself.
