FLOWERS AND HERALDRY;

Or, Floral Emblems and Heraldic Figures combined to express pure sentiments, kind feelings, and excellent principles, in a manner at once simple, elegant, and beautiful. By ROBERT TYAS, B.A. Author of " Favourite Field Flowers,' "Flowers from the Holy Land," &c. &c. With 24 illustrative Plates, drawn from the Author's Instructions, and coloured, by James Andrews.

"In the volume before us the author has allied, in a very pleasing and peculiar manner, the science of flowers to heraldry; and all the difficult terms and mysticisms, which have daunted numbers from a familiar acquaintance with the latter, are explained and simplified to suit the

comprehension of all. To facilitate reference, tabular forms are also annexed, and the arrangement of the entire work on this easy method is calculated to introduce the reader, step by step, to an excellent understanding of the subjects treated upon."-HOME COMPANION. By the same Author,

THE SENTIMENT

OF

FLOWERS.

With many Groups of Flowers, tastefully designed and coloured.
"In eastern lands they talk in flowers,

And they tell in a garland their loves and cares;
Each blossom that blooms in their garden bowers
On its leaves a mystic language bears."

This work teaches the eloquent language referred to in the above beautiful lines. As in the East, so in the fair island of Britain, "flowers are here made to speak the language of sentiment."
