WILD FLOWERS. Anne Pratt. 1902 NINETY-SIX CHROMOLITHOGRAPH IMAGES ON COMPACT DISC. Published in London by Society for Promoting Christian Knoweledge.



 

This CD presents 96 high resolution digital BMP images from the 1902 edition of Wild Flowers. These images can be printed directly from the CD or imported to Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, PaintShop Pro, Adobe PhotoDelux, PrintMaster and other popular painting and drawing programs and printed on quality inkjet paper producing stunning results suitable for framing. Or for designing your own greeting cards, posters, brochures and calendars.


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 " x 5 " 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.

Anne Pratt was one of the more successful botanical artists of her gender and time. She was born on December 5th, 1806 in Stroud,Kent, the second of three daughters of Robert Pratt, a grocer, and Sara Bundock.

A frail 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.
