Flowers of Crete

£50.00

Product description

Kew 2005. Large, very heavy hardback with dust jacket in excellent condition. There is a dedication in ink on title page. Please note that due to the weight of the book being over 3kg, an extra £10 has been added to the price to cover postage costs. Oxfam already pays £4 towards postage.

A celebration of the exceptionally rich, yet threatened, flora of this, the largest island in the Greek archipelago. Crete's enchanting landscapes range from rugged mountains to desert-like areas, coastal plains and ancient olive groves. Its extraordinary geological and climatic history has resulted in great plant diversity, with prehistoric links to Europe, Asia, and North Africa. The authors and editor, united by their love of the island's flora, have produced a sumptuous and authoritative book, covering over 800 plant species, and with more than 1900 stunning colour photographs.
