by Cai Sufan, Oriental Flowers Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Oriental Flowers books, The aesthetic and symbolic properties of plants and gardens are enjoyed the world over, but this book focuses on 200 of the plants which enjoy particularly high esteem in The Orient. Oriental Plants presents these specimens by means of beautifully hand-drawn plates. It may come as a surprise to many peoplethat the majority of the cultivated plants and trees we are so fond of here in the western world originally hailed from China and the Orient. The Chinese revere the plum, orchid, bamboo and chrysanthemum as the four gentlemen, believing that they possess incomparably noble qualities; and for the Japanese, cherry blossoms symbolize love and hope. This has led to a longstanding tradition of painting plants that developed into a significant style of painting. The book is firmly rooted in this tradition, and of particular importance is the way in which it has been produced; printed on paper scroll which is as thin as silk, it is bound using traditional methods.

by Beverly Seaton, The Language Of Flowers Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Language Of Flowers books, The author traces the phenomenon of ascribing sentimental meaning to floral imagery from its beginnings in Napoleonic France through its later transformations in England and America. At the heart of the book is a depiction of what the three most important flower books from each of the countries divulge about the period and the respective cultures. Seaton shows that the language of flowers was not a single and universally understood correlation of flowers to meanings that men and women used to communicate in matters of love and romance. The language differs from book to book, country to country. To place the language of flowers in social and literary perspective, the author examines the nineteenth-century uses of flowers in everyday life and in ceremonies and rituals and provides a brief history of floral symbolism. She also discusses the sentimental flower book, a genre especially intended for female readers. Two especially valuable features of the book are its table of correlations of flowers and their meanings from different sourcebooks and its complete bibliography of language of flower titles. This book will appeal not only to scholars in Victorian studies and women's studies but also to art historians, book collectors, museum curators, historians of horticulture, and anyone interested in nineteenth-century popular culture.
