VERY HEAVY SET. Written by the State Botanist, who prepared and arranged the text, and oversaw the photography, choosing the exact plant to be reproduced here. "Not a highly technical guide, couched in closely analytical descriptions, but a comparatively brief text, untechnical so far as the theme permits, accompanied by color illustrations made from the growing plants." Part 1: Letter of Communication; Introduction; Plant Structure; Descriptions of Species. Part 2: Descriptions of Species Continued; List of Illustrations; Index. 362 pp (numbering follows through Part 1 to 2). Corners bumped and rubbed, light edgewear. A little bit of soiling to rear boards, a bit of spotting to endpapers, paperclip marks to last few blank pages in both volumes. Gilt lettering to spines, dark green cloth-covered boards. Hundreds of beautiful and accurate full color illustrations, many simple line drawings too. Clean, bright, tight. Bookseller Inventory # 66919
