First edition in the scarce original parts of Sweet’s practical guide to the cultivation of many of the most beautiful flowering plants then available. 

Each plate shows a single variety and is accompanied by text giving a taxonomic description and instructions for the plant’s cultivation. The work displays a bias towards the tulip family and includes 61 "biblomen" or multicolored varieties. Also included are carnations (19), "picotees" or dianthus (14), pinks (18), ranunculus (38), "Georgianas" or dahlias (6), auriculas (27), polyanthus (2), hyacinths (7), and roses (8). Not included, of course, are any cistus (or rock-roses) or geraniums, both of which were dealt with by Sweet in two earlier monographs (see lot 56).

In addition to the present work, Sweet was author of Hortus Suburbanus Londinensis, London: 1818; Gereniaceae, London: 1820–1830; The Botanical Cultivator, London: 1821; The British Warblers, London: 1823; The British Flower Garden, London: 1823–1829; Cistineae, London: 1825–1830; Sweet’s Hortus Britannicus, London: (1826)–1827; Flora Australasica, London: 1827–1828; and in conjunction with H. Weddell, British Botany, London: 1831.
