About this Item

A VG copy in the original green decorative cloth binding with gilt plant pictures and titles to front board and spine, and blind stamped decoration to rear board. The boards have bevelled edges. This work is generally attributed to Shirley Hibberd. It is clear from the Preface that it contains work from a number of authors, so it is likely that Hibberd had the editorial role. A number of the colour plates appear in 1870's copies of the Floral World - again edited by Hibberd. It is undated but is probably late 1870's/early1880's. With title page in red and black inks; colour printed frontispiece and 35 further colour printed plates, and numerous black and white illustrations - some full page. The binding is slightly shaken with a little bumping to corners and wear to edges including spine joint edges. The original endpapers are present. The contents are generally very clean apart from the very occasional brown spot. Some of the plant outlines can be seen faintly on the reverse of the plate. All the plates are tissue guarded - some of the guards are browned. This was an expensive production - on thick good quality paper. A beautiful work. Bookseller Inventory # 031264

Store Description

We are a small online bookselling business specialising in rare and unusual books, generally published before 1900, with a focus on natural history, history, science and mathematics, travel and exploration, illustrated and some literature. We have recently moved to the beautiful Orkney Islands and are adding a specialist Orkney/Shetland section to our listings. We intend to open a bookstore here in the next year. We take images of all of our books to supplement the online descriptions, and are always happy to provide more on request. When you order from us, we ensure that books are properly packed to protect their condition and we always use recorded or 'signed for' postal services for additional security. Because we are based on an island which depends on ferries and flights for shipping, we can not guarantee 'next day' delivery. We will simply get your purchase to you as quickly and safely as we can.

This is by exception, for example we have not had to do this at all in the last 2 years. If your book is small and light we are happy for you to enquire about shipping 'at cost'.
All overseas shipments are FOB, the buyer is responsible for managing and paying import duties.

We pack our books in tissue paper, layers of bubble wrap, and craft paper with parcel tape to prevent water ingress. We use boxes generally for sets of books or large items.
