A vision of Eden: the life and work of Marianne North


Pages of text faintly tanned at edges, otherwise little used. An account, largely in her own words, of the intercontinental travels of an intrepid woman artist specialising in botanical landscapes, who is celebrated by having her own picture gallery at Kew (built at her own expense). An enthralling read; not quite up to the standard of love among the butterflies, sadly, but still a fascinating account of one Victorian's odyssey. 240 pp., map of travel routes on end papers. 240 pp.
