From the rear cover: “This monograph combines the artistry of two of the world’s foremost botanical illustrators with the meticulous work of two highly respected biologists. The exquisitely delicate watercolour paintings capture the fragile elegance of almost all the Gladiolus species in the region. The detailed entries for each of the 163 species include a comprehensive description of the plant, its synonyms, geographic range and biology, its evolutionary relationships and its taxonomic history. A major botanical reference for an important and very beautiful genus.” 319 Pages. Contents clean and tightly bound. 1st Edition. Condition: Near fine. Dust jacket: Very good.
