The Intelligence of Flowers. Text by Maurice Maeterlinck. Translated by Alexander Teixeira de Mattos. Illustrated by Alvin Langdon Coburn. Dodd, Mead & Company, New York, 1907. First edition. Octavo. Cloth-backed patterned boards with decorative label mounted on cover. 179 pp.

The four plates are green-toned photogravure images by Coburn taken in a formal garden. The frontispiece is a lovely pictorialist photograph of lily pond; the second shows light playing off flowers in a planter at the corner of a stone walkway; the third is a perspective view of garden statuary and sculpted trees; and the final image features a large architectural tombstone. In 1915 Coburn photographed the handsome Maeterlinck for his series of notable men.

A nearly fine copy, with a little rubbing at top and bottom of spine and corners of boards and a few small nicks in edge of label on cover.
