About : This eBook is the second in a series of publications that make publicly accessible a number of rare archival documents and books in the collection of the Dundas Museum and Archives. Normally not available to the public due to its extreme fragility, a poem from the 1853 publication A Floral Forget Me Not, by Henry F. Anners, has been reproduced with a number of related botanical illustrations from the book. The eBook will be utilized as a component of an education program focusing on the Victorian use of the “language of flowers.”
