The graphic arts have played a central role in the history of book illustration, and this exhibition of botanical books, prints, and drawings is also a demonstration of many techniques of printing pictures. In the Oak Spring Garden Library, Rachel Lambert Mellon has brought together her collection of books, drawings, and manuscripts in a setting surrounded by her own orchard and garden. This volume is the catalogue of a special loan exhibition at Princeton University Library in 1989 of a generous garland of flowers, fruit, and garden history from Mellon's library. It marks the publication of An Oak Spring Sylva, the first of a series of catalogues describing the library's contents. Illus.

This is the latest volume in a major series that describes selections of the rare books, manuscripts, and other works of art held at Oak Spring Garden Library, a collection formed by Rachel Lambert Mellon. The 111 items chosen for this volume on floral illustration since the later Middle Ages include Books of Hours, still-life and vanitas paintings, botanical prints, and books of instruction of every kind, from planting a garden to making flowers using colored papers or wax. Lucia Tongiorgi Tomasi groups the works into chapters on such topics as florilegia, women artists, tulipomania, Dutch and Flemish painting, and exotic flowers from distant lands, providing an introduction to each chapter that gives the contextual background necessary for a real understanding and appreciation of floral illustration past and present. The sheer beauty as well as extraordinary skills encountered, for example, in manuscript florilegia by Jacob Marrel and Maria Sibylla Merian, in hand-colored books by Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues and G.B. Ferrari, and in flower studies painted by John Constable, Margaret Mee, and others, are testament to the high status accorded floral illustration over the centuries. This handsome, richly illustrated volume will attract all those with an interest in rare
