    Book details

This book draws on Edward Bawden's delightful illustrations, posters and linocuts of Kew Gardens made over 60 years. A reprint of a forgotten curiosity created by one of the great artist-illustrators of the Twenties and Thirties. The editors describe in their introduction how they found the original manuscript in Bedford Museum contained between battered cardboard covers, bound with string . It presents a light-hearted social history of Kew, peopled with the many Hanoverian Kings, Queens and Princes who resided there, as well as courtiers such as the 3rd Earl of Bute, Joseph Banks Fulke Greville and their proteges including William Chambers, William Aiton, Fanny Burney and Sir William Hooker. Alongside Bawden's posters and linocuts, the book is illustrated with the contemporary caricatures of Rowlandson and Gillray as well as botanical illustrations by Franz Bauer and others.
