Mary Lawrance was well-known in Georgian England as a flower painter. Her work was shown at the Royal Academy and she also gave lessons in flower painting. In 1799 she published the first ever work illustrating the many varieties of rose.

The work was published as a periodical in 30 issues and these came to be bound in many formats. One of the original volumes was passed through the generations to Clari, Jonathan Marrow's wife. By this time it had become very fragile and was sold so that it could be restored. The current volume contains most of the images, reproduced from the original volume before it was sold.


About the Author

Jonathan Marrow
marrowj The Wirral, England
Worked as a young doctor as a Government Medical Officer in Botswana. Spent most of my career caring for patients brought to hospital as emergencies. My design portfolio includes the preparation of material for lecture presentations and posters, internal publication of volumes of clinical guidelines and the production of family greetings cards by many different methods and over many years. More recently I have held a brief to create and reinforce a brand image for the College of Emergency Medicine, which was established in 2006. Now retired from clinical work, much of my time is spent organising and copying photographs, writings and art work collected over the years.
