KING, Jessie M. Budding Life A Book of Flowers

Gowans and Gray, 1907.

Deluxe edition. 8vo. Grey Japanese vellum wrappers lettered in black and decorated in silver, blue, green and red, the design depicting a shepherdess and her flock. Inscribed on the initial page, "To Undine, with every good greeting from her midnight nuisance! the artist. Jessie M. King." Illustrated title page and 15 full page line drawings of various blossoms and trees. The drawings to this volume are delicate and detailed. A very good copy indeed.

This deluxe edition is in a larger format than the standard edition, and the JMK illustration on the upper cover is a beautiful example of her early work.
