The Trees of Great Britain and Ireland, 8 vol. (including Index), 5 colour frontispieces, portrait, 412 plates, bound in wooden boards, deerskin spines by Birdsall (Index in half deerskin) [Nissen BBI 595], 4to, Edinburgh, 1906-1913

Footnotes

  • A VERY HANDSOME SET of this rare issue with each volume bound in the wood from a different species from Petworth (printed labels on pastedowns giving names), and the half-binding of deerskin from the same source. Velvet dividers have ensured that the boards have not been rubbed, as seems to have be the case with another set offered some years ago.
