Book Description William S Orr & Co, LONDON, 1846. Cloth. Condition: Poor. Jane Loudon (illustrator). 2nd Edition. A poor copy of this beautiful work with 60 hand coloured plates. Classed as poor because the title page is missing; the binding is poor - in marked plain cloth and beginning to detach; and there is a little marking internally. The pagination matches our other 2nd edition copy so this is presumed as second, dated to 1846. The plates are in good condition - there is some brown spotting to edges, and around 3 have a darkened section, again at the edge not affecting the flower image (we have noticed only one plate with a light mark affecting the flower). All have tissue guards - one guard is torn and one has a small hole - most guards have marking. A few text pages have a little marking and p 117 has a repaired tear to the top margin. The final index page has a small hole at the top. This copy would be well worth rebinding. Seller Inventory # 031483

Book Description Soft cover. Book Description: James Nelson, London, 3rd. edition, 1859. Half-Leather. 4to. Pp. xvi, 311 + 60 Plates. All edges marbled. Marbled endpapers. Weight 2.5 kg. Book Condition: Very Good. 60 fine large lithographic plates with original hand colouring hand-coloured plates as called for, all bright with paper guards and only occasional slight finger marks. Contemporary half morocco with gilt decorated spine, a trifle rubbed and frayed at extrems. A very attractive copy having generally clean pages with just occasional spotting and finger marks mainly on the text pages. The 60 plates are very finely hand-coloured and almost entirely free of foxing. This is a very nice copy of the very popular book by Jane Wells Loudon (née Webb) was an author, a prolific writer on botanical, horticultural and natural science subjects and a magazine editor. Jane studied botany after her marriage to author and landscape designer John Claudius Loudon. She attended lectures by the renowned botanist John Lindley, after whom the Royal Horticultural Society's (RHS) Lindley Library is named, and often wrote up her notes as articles. She travelled widely with her husband, acting as secretary to him on trips throughout the British Isles, helping him to compile, record and edit his books and periodicals, working as his literary assistant, into the early hours of the morning. Increased debt incurred during her marriage caused Jane to turn to writing again herself. She had started early in life writing fiction and science fiction anonymously but now she started writing gardening books that were extremely popular, especially with women, together with books on plants, botany and this item, British Wild Flowers.

Book Description William Smith, London, 1847. Hard Cover. Condition: Generally Very Good. Second Edition. Mrs Jane Loudon, 1807 - 1858. There seem to be several claims for a true first edition ranging from 1844 to 1847, this copy is claimed as a second edition. 60 Hand coloured plates. Full dark green leather, possibly later as the spine has been re laid. Gilt ruled lines and decorations, raised bands with six gilt dec. panels, including title. Gilt dentelles to edges and inner edges.Marbled eps. Both front and rear hinges have been strengthened. Paper name plate attached to front free ep. All edges gilt.Some very minor scuffing to head and tail of spine, there is scuffing at the hinge side of free ep., not severe, otherwise very clean and bright. Light foxing to prelims, very small tear to leading edge of free ep. There are no tissue guards to any of the plates, but only very occasional light set off. The plates are very clean, a hint of very light foxing here and there. Overall this is a very handsome copy, despite repairs, of a classic work. There will be no extra postage for UK buyers, but overseas buyers will need to allow for extra postage. Seller Inventory # 005583
