About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for HARDY CALIFORNIANS by Rowntree Lester.

Description:

First Edition. With over 60 black and white plates from the authorís photographs. 8vo, original salmon cloth, gilt lettered on the spine and upper cover, in dustjacket. xiv, 255 pp. The cloth quite fine and bright, the text fine but for some very minor edge spotting, the jacket with some light wear and toning but still quite pleasing and complete. FIRST EDITION. A wonderful work on hardy native flowers of the Golden State. Rowntree has produced here neither a gardening book nor a typical identification guide, but a conveyance of the loveliness and garden possibilities of some of the lesser known native hardy plants.

Book Description The Macmillan Company, New York, 1936. Cloth. Condition: Good. First Edition. First edition, illustrated, octavo, pp xvi, 255, slightly age-toned, endpapers slightly browned, the top 25mm cut from the front endpaper, cloth slightly worn, spine rather dull and faded, lower cover with two small adherence marks. [Rowntree was a renowned field botanist and horticulturalist, a pioneer in the study, propagation, and conservation of California native plants. In numerous journal and magazine articles, books, and public lectures, she shared her extensive knowledge of wildflowers and shrubs while arguing tirelessly for their protection. A self-proclaimed "lady-gypsy", Rowntree spent most of each year doing fieldwork in California and the West while living outdoors, believing that the only way to know native plants was to live with them for weeks at a time in their natural surroundings. Because of her reputation as a field botanist, Rowntree has been compared favorably to David Douglas, the 19th century British botanist who first documented western North American flora. Joan Parry Dutton writes: "There are striking similarities between Lester Rowntree and David Douglas. In fact, Lester could be Douglasí plant-wise and spiritual descendant [for] Lesterís knowledge of California wild flowers is unrivaled; it is safe she knows more about them than Douglas ever knew.
