British Wild Flowers
London: John Van Voorst, 1863. Original cloth. Very Good +. John E. Sowerby. A handsome copy of this 1863 early re-issue, "to which is now added a supplement containing 180 figures of lately discovered flowering plants by John W. Salter and the ferns, horsetails, and club-mosses by John E. Sowerby". Solid and VG+ in its dark-green cloth, with crisp gilt-lettering and devices along the front panel and spine and decorative blindstamping to the panels. Very light wear at the spine crown, a touch of light soiling to the pastedowns and endsheets. Thick octavo, all edges gilt. The lovely John Sowerby chromolithogrphed plates, featuring 1,770 detailed illustrations of various British wild flowers, all include their original tissue-guards, which has kept them clean and bright.
