Familiar Indian Flowers


Lewis, Lena. London: L. Reeve and Co., 1878.  Illustrated with 30 chromolithographic plates. Contemporary brown publisher’s cloth with gilt borders and page edges. Unpaginated. Small 4to. Good.

Extra-scarce volume of Indian botany, profusely illustrated with brightly colored plates depicting a variety of flowers. Brown publisher’s cloth with gold borders and titling; all page edges are likewise gilt. Tipped-in letter from 1898, as well as an errata slip on the first text page. Tear to the front groove, with occasional wear to the boards, and rubbed corners. Except for scattered foxing, the interior is in lovely condition overall.
