Famille des Composées, 10ime Cahier - manuscript; floral specimens] - 1900. 
c. 1900, France - An aesthcially pleasing volume, near bursting with specimens from the daisy family. Stitched blue wraps, handwritten label affixed to front cover (white with a decorative blue border, these labels are used throughout); 235 x 315 mm; contains more than 100 specimens from the daisy family, affixed to recto and verso with paper tape (sometimes, remnants of the aforementioned labels). A taxonomic endeavor, the botanical name and genus of each specimen is identified by hand, in black ink, in (again!) blue-bordered label, and sometimes accompanied by pencil notations and/or printed text from an unknown source. (Text is concerned with the science of daisies and is not at all, well, flowery. No poems about posies, you see.) Small waterstain at fore-edge of front cover; some specimens missing their flower, but condition is excellent overall. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
