In 1730 Robert Furber, an English nurseryman, published an unusual flower catalogue. On each of its twelve pages, he illustrated graceful arrangements of flowers grouped according to the month in which they bloom. Four hundred varieties, all of which could be purchased in London nurseries, were accurately illustrated and identified. Intended primarily as a sales catalogue, the “Twelve Months of Flowers” was an immediate artistic success and as such as been treasured for almost 300 years.
