Here is a vintage copy of The Book of Flowering Trees and Shrubs by Stanley B Whitehaed. Published in 1956 by Frederick Warne and Co. Ltd, London, this is a first edition hardback with dust wrapper. It has 63 excellent colour plates describing over 250 species. This compact hardback is in good condition and it still has the original dust jacket which does have some wear but has now been protected for the future by the addition of a removable plastic sleeve.

Inside the pages are excellent being clean and tightly bound with no writing or marks. The front and rear endpapers have slight tanning. The closed top edge is tinted green to match the boards with a few light splash marks. All of the plates are present and in very good condition. With a glossary and full indexes at the rear.

Green boards are also good having been well protected by the dust wrapper. With just some fading along the top edge.

The charming colourful illustrated dust wrapper has some creases, chips and tears along the edges. With some small areas of loss at the head of the spine and the corners. It has now been placed in a removable plastic sleeve and despite the wear still looks very bright and presentable.

A colourful and informative vintage book. Your copy of The Book of Flowering Trees and Shrubs will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message to the parcel.

H 16.5 cm x W 12 cm, 0.39 kg, 244 pages. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (There are just a very few countries which I am unable to ship to).

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped and sent simply in the full protective packaging, please add a note to the order.
