Description:

1st edition. Arthur Harry Church (1865-1937) was a British botanist, lecturer in natural sciences at Jesus, Oxford, and author of influential works in the field of botany. The present book was intended to be the first volume of an account of 'The Hundred Best Flowers', however he fell out with the publisher so that only one volume of the work appeared. It was illustrated with his own drawings, many of them in colour; they are some of the finest produced in modern times. Most were subsequently preserved in the British Museum (Natural History), and their strikingly bold, almost Jugendstil, images were used on greetings cards in the 1980s. (ODNB)

Condition

4to, orig. green cloth, small dark stain to spine; endpapers browned, occasional light foxing to verso of a few plates but not affecting the illustrations. A very attractive copy of this beautifully illustrated botanical work.
