About this Item

Pp. (i)-xl, 2-150; frontispiece portrait of Adrian H. Haworth, 120 color photographs, 31 black-and-white photos and half-tones, 24 distribution maps. Publisher's original dark green morocco leather, spine with five raised bands, red morocco title/author label in one compartment, two-color map endpapers, in gray cloth-covered slipcase with green marbled paper on the top, side and bottom of the slipcase and dark green morocco flange at the opening of the slipcase, sm 4to (11 x 8 1/4 inches). This is Sponsors' edition, limited to 27 signed copies lettered A-Z, signed by the author on the limitation page; this is copy letter V. The subscriber's page shows that there were sixteen sponsors to this work, presumably, they received letters A-Q; this left only eleven copies available for sale. The copy offered here is one of these eleven available for sale. Haworthia is a large genus of small succulent plants endemic to Southern Africa (Mozambique, Namibia, Lesotho, Swaziland, South Africa). Like the Aloes, they are members of the subfamily Asphodeloideae and they generally resemble miniature aloes, except in their flowers, which are distinctive in appearance. Horticulturally they are popular garden and container plants (from Wiki). This is an important taxonomic revision of the genus Haworthia that was named after Adrian H. Haworth who was an English entomologist, botanist and crustacean expert. This very rare offering is finely bound in attractive dark green morocco that is housed in a custom slipcase.
