These attractive antique chromolithograph plates were transferred from the 1902 publication of "Wild Flowers". These highly decorative plates are exquisitely colored. The illustrations of flowers are some of the most delicate. The originals measure 4 ¼" x 5 ½" with bright vivid color. The coloring still intensely vivid and delicately applied have not been lost in these digital scans.
The print out size is the same size as the originals, if not enlarged or reduced. I have found that these Images print best on Ink Jet Matte paper. When printed directly from the CD, they are the actual size. (The same as the originals) and the result is an awesome print almost indistinguishable as a reproduction print, even when using a relatively inexpensive home ink jet printer.

child, Anne devoted much of her time to studying instead of playing childhood
games. Consequently, she became quite learned in literary matters. She was
educated at Eastgate House, near the Rochester Museum. Because she seemed such a
lonely child, a Scottish friend of the family, Dr. Dodds, introduced her to
botany. She was instantly enthralled with the subject. Her older sister
encouraged Anne's interest by collecting plants and flowers and bringing them
back to the house. In this way, Anne accumulated a fine herbarium and continued
to sketch and study plants.
In 1826, when
she was twenty years old, Anne Pratt left home and moved to Brixton to live with
friends. There, she tried to get her work published. It took her several years
before her first book appeared in print.
