The Useful and Ornamental Plants in Zanzibar and Pemba [1949]

£24.99

Product description

Published in 1949 by Zanzibar Protectorate, printed by St Ann's Press, Timperley. Illustrated with black & white photographs and drawings.

A thorough reference to the plants of two islands of Tanzania, on the East Africa coast.
Part One includes a summary of the arrangement of the lists and keys of the book, lists of useful plants, keys to the ornamental plants, and an alphabetical list of families and genera of plants.
Part Two provides plant descriptions and names, together with a glossary.

The board cover is in fair to good condition, although badly marked and faded, it does have only light wear. There is a light crack along the internal hinge of the front end-paper. A former owner's name is written on the inside of the cover. A number of foxing spots on the end papers and particularly to the edges of the pages, although the pages themselves are generally clean and the binding is sound. An acceptable reading copy.
