Vintage engraving of a flower bouquet in an urn. This book image was most likely made with a wood engraving and would work well anywhere you would normally use a rubber stamp. The details aren’t sharp enough to make out what any of the flowers are but that just adds to the universality of this flower drawing.
I have had the pleasure of working with a number of these vintage children’s encylopedias form the 1800s. They always seem to contain such a wonderful variety of illustrations and this one was no exception. The boys’ and girls’ library containing a variety of useful and instructive reading, selected from eminent writers for youth contained the artwork of William Monkhouse (1805?-1862) and was published in 1851.
