Collins Wilflower Guide,
This review is from: Collins Flower Guide (Britain and Ireland) (Paperback)
I bought this because I had heard very good feedback about the hardback but wanted something to take into the field. However it is a bit heavy for that and one still needs Stace.
The main problem is that the paper back is too small for the illustrations to really show well and even under a lens (which appears to be necessary) they only come up blurry.
I will probably buy the hardback, but will make sure I see a copy first.

'Stace' is botanists short-hand for 'Flora of the British Isles', (maybe 'New Flora') the big almost-no-pictures-includes-all-species plant id book. It's about 5cm thick and very heavy, on bible-thin paper. Author is Clive Stace.
