About this Item

Cloth-backed decorative paper over boards (7.5 x 10.75 inches); contains about 150 specimens of leaves and flowers in good condition, neatly mounted and labelled by hand, usually 3 or more per page. Boards a bit rubbed; backstrip detached, but binding remains tight. Some off-setting from the specimens onto facing pages, and a few specimens missing, but the remaining 150 are in excellent condition overall -- some decay, as expected. Flower specimens from this region are particularly hard to come by. Their labels offer varying degrees of specificity, such as: "Olive Leaf / from Plain of Sharon / March 25, '72," "From Bethlehem / April 5, 1872" (beneath a display of 6 different, otherwise unidentified flowers), and "Valley of Ephraim, near Jenin." Interesting. Bookseller Inventory # D6771
