As described by
The Art of Botanical Illustration. Written by Wilfrid Blunt "with the assistance of William T. Stearn," published by Collins, St. James's Place, London, 1967. This gorgeous and rare book contains "47 colour plates, 32 b/w plates,and 75 figures in the text." Absolutely brilliant illustrations with abundant advice and information. There is some whimsy too, as in the inclusion of Edward Lear's picture of "Manypeeplia Upsidownia" from his Nonsense Botany, 1871. Fabulous gift!
