The Concise British Flora in Colour: 1486 Species Illustrated.
Foreword by HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. With nomenclature edited and revised by Douglas H. Kent. Martin [1877-1969] spent about 60 years creating these precise drawings. First published in 1965; unfortunately some of the plants shown as common were already becoming rare when this second edition, with a second preface, was published. Botanically accurate, gorgeous illustrations drawn from life of wildflowers, most in color, grouped in 100 plates. Glossary and index of botanical and common English names. Slight wear to cover, faint browning of pages. A group of pages has loosened from binding glue, providing an opportunity to pick up this collector's book at a low price. Sphere Books, London. 1972.
