Bound in forest green leatherette and featuring a central gold embossed honeysuckle motif, this 1962 hardback edition is in excellent condition.
The binding of the book is tight and inside, the coloured plates of botanical illustrations have kept their vibrancy.
Structured into four parts, Brimble’s work covers the structure of flowering plants and grasses. It contains a beautiful frontispiece of the pea family and 17 coloured plates, including the rose, forget-me-not and buttercup families.
This is a beautiful reference book that would make a thoughtful gift for a keen gardener, budding florist or simply a lover or nature. It would also add a bit of botanical charm to a seasonal display.
