British Wild Flowers, 1957 edition. Series 536.
The illustrations of the beautiful book are a collaboration between a husband and wife team. The great watercolour artist Rowland Hilder painted the background while Edith Hilder produced the exquisite foreground botanical studies. The two also collaborated with equal success on the Shell Guide posters of the same decade.
This copy still has its original dustwrapper which is not price-clipped. This copy is in very good condition – both dj and book itself. The endpapers are tight and there is only light wear and the expected chips and creases to the edges of the DJ. The shine you can see on the photo is from the (removeable) DJ protector sleeve
