Wild Flowers; The Wild Flowers of Britain and Northern Europe

£14.99

Product description

From the blurb;

"Wild flowers are on of our most enduring sources of pleasure. Familiarity with them is rewarding for its own sake; but it also allows us to find fascination in even the most barren pieces of waste ground and transforms a walk in the English countryside into an experience of enchantment.

This book is intended for those who want to increase their familiarity with wild flowers, or who, having once acquired it, would like to maintain it, even at those times when the countryside is inaccessible or when the flowers themselves fade. Marjorie Blamey`s paintings have already been highly praised for their accuracy as well as for their sheer artistry. Here, reproduced in a large size as well as for their sheer artistry. Here, reproduced in a larger size with each flower clearly labelled with its English name, they offer both pleasure and education. The concise text by two leading naturalists, Richard and Alastair Fitter, provides an admirable complement to the illustrations of the individual flowers. There are also indexes of English and Latin names, and a glossary of botanical terms.

This volume is based on the Wild Flowers of Britain and Northern Europe, one of the most successful guides to wild flowers ever produced. The emphasis here, however, is slightly different. This book should be a permanent record and reminder of the beauty of our wild flowers, and a source of satisfaction and information at any time in any place - not just in the countryside itself. Nature yields far more to the informed than the uniformed eye: here is the ideal education."

Very good pages with slight edge-wear. Front flyleaf removed as it is an ex-library book. Includes dust jacket in very good condition.
