‎1) 27 ff.n.ch. et 462 pp. - 2) Frontispice, 476 pp."The Flowers of Literature consisted primarily of extracts from what were perceived to be the year's most popular publications. The extracts were drawn from a range of genres, including poetry, travel writing, biography and prose fiction" (cf. Anthony Mandal in www.cf.ac.uk/encap/corvey/articles/database/flowers.html)Les deux présents volumes, les premiers de ce périodique littéraire anglais qui parut tous les ans jusqu'en 1809, sont des témoins des huit années d'exil que passa Louis-Philippe d'Orléans en Angleterre, à Twickenham. Ils portent en effet le chiffre et les armoiries du futur roi des Français (OHR 2577, 2 et 11 réduits) avant de faire partie, après son accès sur le trône, de sa bibliothèque de Neuilly dont on voit les estampilles aux pages de titre ‎
