Only proviso was that the cover was a bit messed up and a few notes inside,but that doesn't matter so much,I guess.
The exquisite detail of the author's artwork makes it possible to identify plants at different stages of growth, with the accompanying description of habitat, time of flowering etc.,reinforcing the pictures.
Division of the drawings into plant families saves time when seeking an unknown "daisylike" or "clover-leafed" specimen,and the use of botanical (Latin) names alongside common names aids the gardener and herbalist,or anyone who wants to avoid expensive or painful mistakes in identification. There are drawings of shrubby and grassy plants as well as flowers. Seriously educational!
I am most pleased with it.
