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. It is in very good condition inside and out. There’s a neat name and year (Tony Hancock, 1965!) on the front (white) endpapers but this is mainly hidden by the dustwrapper The pages are nice and clean.
