British Wild Flowers, Loudon, Mrs. [Jane Wells Loudon, nee Webb]
1 Loudon, Mrs. [Jane Wells Loudon, nee Webb] British Wild Flowers
London William Smith; printer: Bradbury and Evans 1859 Quarter Morocco Very Good 
4to, xvi, 311 pp + 60 hand-colored floral plates. Nissen 1233. Indistinguishable from the 1st ed. issued a decade prior. The floral illustrations are consistently well-composed and delightful, and their size and careful definition actually make them more informative as a visual reference than more modern photographic compilations of wild flowers. The accompanying text is concise and helpfully supplements the visual presentation. Very clean copy with de minimus soil marks. Text pages have some light age toning. Plates are bright and fresh. Most tissue guards survive and crisp; one has half missing. Some wear to red morocco. Cloth has soiling. Dimensions: 12 by 9.5 inches, 30 by 24 cm. 
Price: 1100.00 USD
