A few quotes:
''No work is at once so refined and ennobling as that which by imitating the beautiful and lovely in nature raises the human mind ...And of all beautiful things in Nature, ''flowers, sweet flowers,'' are admitted to be of all things the most lovely. Next to adorning our homes with these exquisite natural beauties, comes the art to form their counterpart in the most perfect manner, which is done in no way more accurately than by the use of wax. Copies of flowers and fruit in wax are, undoubtedly, the most truthful and life-like that can be conceived; and as the contemplation of the beautiful is always interesting and instructive, so the art of copying or producing faithful imitations of the same, must tend to instruct and refine the taste and improve the mind of the operator; and it will be found that those persons constantly engaged in copying the lovely things scattered by a munificent Creator, through our woods and glens, will be ever on the watch for beautiful objects; this alone would be a high recommendation in favor of teaching the art of forming the flowers and fruit of our own and distant lands.''
What a historically educational and delightful art instructional piece this is!
