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 once had a dustwrapper which has been lost along the way. It is in very good condition inside and out. There’s a neat name stamp on the front (white) endpapers. The pages are very clean and tight.
