The books are full of new paintings, including new species and subspecies, and bringing the total number of plants illustrated to more than 800. All plants are all depicted at life-size and include many detailed enlargements, showing all aspects of the twigs, flowers, fruit, nuts and flowers of each plant in technically superb detail. Comprehensive notes, drafted in consultation with expert botanists from around New Zealand, provide up-to-date botanical and identification information on every plant, including descriptions and notes on habitat, distribution, synonymy and nomenclature. An outstanding contribution to the study of botany in New Zealand and an essential addition to any library.
Both books are in very good condition, with a little bit of bumping to the spine ends. The slipcase has been heavily reinforced by cellotape to all edges and is a little tatty but has done a good job in keeping the books clean. These books weigh in excess of 6kg so postage will be by courier.
