China: Mother of Gardens
Available From More sellersView all copies of this book
Hardcover, no dustjacket, a beautiful gift/collector's copy of this authoritative work by botanist Ernest Henry Wilson (1876-1930) who had the affectionate nickname 'Chinese' and who introduced many Asian plant species to the West, two minor flaws keep this copy from being flawless: the former owner's name written discreetly on the inside of the front cover at the top corner, also, a small area of the cloth at the top edge of the spine has some surface-wear (it is difficult to see) , black cloth binding with bright gold decorative pattern, gold on black spine title, impressive red end-papers with decorative bright gold pattern, nicely-illustrated title page, 61 illustrations from photos taken by the author, also a diagram and a folding map, we inspected this wonderful production page by page and the contents are pristine, "The subject matter - has been drawn from the author's previous work, 'A Naturalist in Western China' - The material used has been amended and thoroughly revised and new illustrations added".
