Flower Families and Ancestors
Frederic E. Clements
Welcome to the Beautiful Book Boutique. AbeBooks has many millions of books, many of which are rare books, collectable books, antiquarian books or unique books. They range in subject from collectable pop-up books and atlases to out-of-print instruction manuals and more. And every day, thousands of books sell and thousands more are added from booksellers all over the world.
We see a lot of collectable and antiquarian flower books, gardening books, horticulture books and books with floral motif show up on our monthly most expensive sales lists. Many include full colour plates, or at least illustrations, and all the examples we've showcased below possess unusually ornate, detailed or striking beautiful covers.
Whether you're interested in mulching or weeding, flowering ornamental trees or soil composition for superior hyacinths, you can find it on AbeBooks. Here are 25 examples of gorgeous, flower-themed books from years gone by.
Please note: prices are approximate to within a small margin, as currencies fluctuate. Quantity on rare books extremely limited; copies on display may sell quickly.
