Lieferbar innerhalb von 2-3 Tagen
BeschreibungOriginally published in the early 1900s, this book is beautifully translated by Mrs Alexander Kennedy from the original Italian text of Paulo Mantegazza. Containing lovely illustrations for each flower, it tells the intricate and fascinating stories associated with each of them. It reads like a book of fairy tales and would be appealing to readers both young and old. 'Once upon a time, a young and beautiful god, endowed with all the strength and passions of his twenty years, came down to earth in search of a little amusement. I am sorry I can't tell you his name, not having been able to decipher it in the manuscript that I discovered in the library of Christiania. But that does not matter. The gods and men that have no name are always the nicest.' Contents Include: The Sunflower The Edelweiss The Water Lily The Fuchsia The Mignonette The Dahlia The Forget-Me-Not The Wistaria The Iris The Lilac The Periwinkle The Blackthorn The Cornflower The Jessamine The Amaryllis
