Description
Die Pilgerfahrt Der Blumengeister- Bottger, Adolf- Leipzig: Friedrich Fleischer, 1857- Later Edition

This book is a German translation whose title in English might best be called The Pilgrimage of the Flower Spirits. The poetry in the volume involves some story about the anthropomorphized flowers that are presented in the illustrations. The beautiful illustrations are 36 colored engravings, taken from J. J. Grandville's 1847 work, Les Fleures Animees. In these works, Grandville attempted to give flowers the characteristics associated with their names. The illustrations appear to be hand colored.
