1 Hepworth, Janet Legends of the Flowers
London and Glasgow Blackie & Son Limited 1936 Hardcover Very Good W. R. H. Johnson 
A really charming book that presents the legends that apparently lie behind certain flowers and explain why they are like they are - such as why Lavender smells as it does and where Marigold got its name. 17 flowers are covered in all. Then, if the stories are not enough, they are accompanied by the very accomplished wood-cuts from Johnson. There are 6 full page wood-cut illustrations and wood-cut head and tail pieces to all of the sections. Johnson is mentioned in Alan Horne's book of 20th century book illustrators and he features one of the wood-cuts from this book. For some strange reason this is the only book listed that is attributed to him. Blue cloth covered boards with gilt illustration to upper board and backstrip. 96pp. c. 19x14 cm. Slight rubbing to corners and top of backstrip edge is worn. Clean and tight internally. Beautifully presented book. 
Price: 20.00 GBP
