View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The purpose of this work is to provide a standard set or illustrations of all the thoroughly established flowering plants growing wild in the British Isles. Each plant, or part thereof, is depicted natural size, and the detailed analyses of flower, fruits, etc are of sufficient magnification to explain the structure quite clearly. As a rule the analyses of the species of each genus, and usually also to each family, are strictly comparable. The underground parts of the plants are illustrated whenever possible.

The work should be or great value to anyone interested in plants, especially teachers and students. It will eventually comprise some 1500 to 1800 plates.

In a Foreword to the work, Sir Edward Salisbury, late Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, wrote: 'The satisfactory portrayal of plants is a difficult art, requiring as it does not only accuracy of observation and delineation, but the artistry to convey what may be termed the individuality of the species. Miss Ross-Craig's representations are a happy combination of artistic portraiture and scientific accuracy of detail.'
