I have had this exact book since I was a child: My mother is also a collector & dealer, who gifted this to me. I’m thrilled to have found a copy for you as well! Bound in red coth covers with extremely elaborate gilt decorations & 9 hand colored floral illustrations. The book contains verses for various flowers and a guide to their sentimental meaning. There is also historical information on the symbolic use of flowers, including an article on funeral flowers. Condition is good with bumper corners & some darkening to the cloth.
