9780821217580: A Treasury of Flowers: Rare Illustrations from the Collection of the New York Botanical Garden

An opulent, large format collection of 18th and 19th century prints that are reproduced here with much of the devotion shown by the artists Humboldt, Catesby, Pallas. The 80 10"x14" illustrations occupy right-hand pages with Anderson's erudite and witty commentary facing them. His comments are upon natural history, economic uses and history, folk wisdom and other matters that sprang to his fertile mind. A lovely book to embellish any collection of books on books or botany. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
