Book. Folio - over 12. 4th enlarged edition, with updating/revisions by Dr. Moritz Willkomm. Pages are 13 by 9 inches, and 54 brightly colored plates of plants, fruits and flowers are about 18 by 13 inches. 77 pp of text. Plates are magnificent and frameable quality. Book is tight and pages clean, with typical and inevitable toning given the paper stock, which is not commensurate with the beauty of the illustrations, as was the case with all the Schreiber plate books of this era. Some soilage on cover illustrated paste down, but illustration is still bright. Some fading to spine decoration, and some shelfwear to boards. Overall a very good, if not better, copy.
