In 2014 I featured a series of blog posts introducing you to 2,014 names. For the most part they were names that were brand new to me as well. Some names may be more familiar but I found the meaning or origin or some other aspect of the name made it worthy of inclusion here. You may love some of the names, you may hate some, but hopefully you enjoy learning about all of them.

The Botanical Magazine, or Flower Garden Displayed

Google Books has made available Curtis' Botanical Magazine or Flower Garden. Not every print is in color. But here are some of the amazingly beautiful ones to be found in this book. I believe I will try to do an embroidery or cross stitch of these. They are lovely! Click on the link above to go to the book on Google Books. 

The following poem appeared on the title page of The Botanical Magazine, or Flower Garden Displayed, by William Curtis, Volume IV, published in 1796.


Some of the pictures show the age of the volume that contained them more than other, such as the one below.
