Slaktet Klematis

£79.99

Product description

This Swedish-language book, 'The Genus Clemantis', is a summary of the author's knowledge of clematis, acquired during more than 50 years as a botanist, landscape architect and nurseryman. The purpose is to provide a picture of the history, the use in gardening, cultivation of clematis and to gather descriptions of species and cultivars.
The first part contains the history, horticultural aspects and treats the cultivation and propagation of clematis. This is followed by a scientific description of clematis, giving an overview of different characteristics in text and drawings, followed by a historical review of the classification by different scientists. The view of the author is given at the end.
In the third part each section is introduced by a description of general characteristics, diagrams showing the distribution of the section and some comments on their use in gardening. Each description starts with literature references and treats 323 species with about 180 varieties and around 1400 cultivars. The book, with a total of 896 pages, contains 24 gouaches, about 100 illustrations from classical literature and ink drawings of the author. Colour pictures of around 170 species and cultivars are grouped systematically and, in general, following the order in the text.

This hardback book is in good readable condition and it is written in Swedish. The front and the back cover is also in good condition. Dust jacket is included.

This copy is signed by the author.
