Product Description:
To wander through the Marianne North gallery at Kew Gardens is to visit the world. The gallery’s dense display of botanical paintings are arranged geographically, allowing viewers to wander from pole to pole by examining the diverse plants that cover the globe. The paintings also hint at the story of their remarkable creator, Marianne North. Born in England in 1830, North refused to be limited to the domestic spaces to which Victorian women were so often confined. Rather, her travels took her to Ceylon, Japan, and Brazil, and she documented the plants she encountered along the way. Her detailed renderings of plants that few were able to see in person provided critical information for the growing science of botany, and many now bear her name as a tribute to her intrepid discoveries. What’s more, the paintings she made are a colorful record of the beauty that covers the earth in its diverse plants.

For the first time, this collection is now accessible to a wide public in book form. All the paintings that hang in the gallery—more than eight hundred in total—are included in this spectacular book. Organized geographically to correspond with the collection’s representation at Kew, this book allows us all to relive North’s remarkable travels and thrilling discoveries, relishing the world’s lush and diverse plants.

  • Royal Botanic Gardens
Product Description:
“White butterflies danced one above another, making with their white shifting flakes the outline of a shattered marble column above the tallest flowers; the glass roofs of the palm house shone as if a whole market full of shiny green umbrellas had opened in the sun; and in the drone of the aeroplane the voice of the summer sky murmured its fierce soul.”

On a hot summer’s day, the Palm House at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, sees the shuffle of thousands of visitors. While some are glad to catch a moment’s rest, others have been inspired by the house’s magnificent displays—both floral and human. A century ago, one of the Garden’s most famous visitors turned her observations into an enchanting story.

Kew Gardens is one of Virginia Woolf’s earliest short stories. The gentle narrative drifts among an eclectic group of visitors as they stroll through the Gardens, including a young couple, a pair of middle-aged ladies looking for tea, and even a snail making a determined trek through the flower beds. Woolf creates an impressionistic world with snippets of conversation, wondering thoughts, and sparks of color.

This edition published by Kew features delightful illustrations by Livi Mills. It will be a treasured addition to the bookshelves of Woolfians everywhere.

Death in Kew Gardens (A Below Stairs Mystery Book 3)

By Jennifer Ashley

Released: 2019-06-04
Kindle Edition (302 pages)

Death in Kew Gardens (A Below Stairs Mystery Book 3)
Product Description:
From the New York Times bestselling author of Scandal Above Stairs

Kat Holloway steps out from beneath the stairs and into international intrigue, where murder and stolen treasure lurk among the upper echelons of Victorian London.

In return for a random act of kindness, scholar Li Bai Chang presents young cook Kat Holloway with a rare and precious gift—a box of tea. Kat thinks no more of her unusual visitor until two days later when the kitchen erupts with the news that Lady Cynthia's next-door neighbor has been murdered.

Known about London as an "Old China Hand," the victim claimed to be an expert in the language and customs of China, acting as intermediary for merchants and government officials. But Sir Jacob's dealings were not what they seemed, and when the authorities accuse Mr. Li of the crime, Kat and Daniel find themselves embroiled in a world of deadly secrets that reach from the gilded homes of Mayfair to the beautiful wonder of Kew Gardens.
