Royal Horticultural Society Pocket Diary 2014: Sharing the Best in Gardening Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The Royal Horticultural Society Diary 2014 features floras from the collection of the world famous Lindley Library. A flora is an account of the plants of a given country or district. The earliest floras were little more than lists, but once botanists started exploring foreign countries and describing unfamiliar plants, illustrated floras began to appear. Over the past three centuries, many of the best portraits of plants have been published in floras, and many of the greatest botanical artists have been employed in illustrating them.  This diary draws on the work of artists like Ferdinand Bauer and James Sowerby, as well as figures less familiar today, and includes plants selected from England, Greece, Portugal, the Himalayas, and Australia. The illustrations range in date from the second half of the eighteenth century to the nineteenth century.

This week-to-view diary is illustrated in colour throughout and includes an internal storage pocket.
