Vol 2 includes the introductions by Forrest, Kingdon-Ward and Rock. Illustrations are actual size, so no giant-flowering species.
1958. Folio, 40pp with some in-text plates, followed by 18 full-page colour plates, bound in oriignal cloth in original colour pictorial dustjacket (slightly tatted, but now in protective, non-adhesive mylar). There is some rubbing, chipping, and creasing of the jacket beneath the mylar, though it still appears intact and attractive. The binding itself has some usual wear – slight bumping of the corners, shelf-wear, and slight sunning or fading of the cloth. Internally there is some very minor foxing at the extremities (apparent only on the cartographic endpapers), and slight toning of the edges. The illustrations and text are still clear, sharp, and vibrant. A lovely copy.
