Pretoria National Botanic Institute 2003 1919795987 / 9781919795980 Pictorial laminated boards Very Good 
Well illustrated, very large tall quarto, pp viii, 398, pictorial laminated boards. A tiny mark to the bottom edge and to the front endpaper, otherwise virtually as new. SCARCE. A heavy book - extra postage will be needed. [This book is based on extensive fieldwork and collections in the Karoo Basin of South Africa and provides the most comprehensive insight so far into extinct seed plants from the Mesozoic of the southern hemisphere. Large numbers of specimens have been used to delimit species and careful note has been taken of associations between different fossil species. A key feature is the focus on fossil seed plant reproductive structures, which are represented by 35 genera and more than 80 species. The book paints a vivid picture of the diversity of life in the Molteno flood plain 230 million years ago and documents the habitats in which modern groups such as mammals, conifers and beetles started to emerge.]

19 Auders, Aris G. & Spicer, Derek The Royal Horticultural Society Encyclopedia of Conifers - a comprehensive guide to cultivars and species
Nicosia Kingsblue Publishing & the RHS 2012 1907057153 / 9781907057151 First Edition Pictorial Cover New 
Two volumes, very well illustrated, large thick quarto, pp 1507, pictorial cloth, a very good set. Please note that this set weighs ten kilos - substantial extra postage will be required. Shipping to the USA, for instance, will be around £67.00 !! [An absolutely stunning work. The Royal Horticultural Society encyclopedia is a much needed reference book on conifer cultivars and species, both hardy and tropical. The two volumes of this extensive and lavishly illustrated 1,500-page work feature about 8,000 cultivars, over 5,000 photographs and all of the world’s 615 conifer species, plus their subspecies and varieties. There has been an explosion of new cultivars in recent years and this complete reference book includes at least a short mention of all recognized cultivars and species, including synonyms, descriptions and size after 10 years where known. For the cultivars it also include finder or originator, date and country of origin. The species descriptions follow the most recent botanical classification (Farjon, 2010) and cultivar information has been compiled with reference to the RHS International Conifer Register and Checklist, including as yet unpublished data. There is a unique appendix listing all the principle conifer collectors, nurseries, arboreta and individuals responsible for introducing new cultivars over the last three centuries. The encyclopedia continues the fine tradition of conifer cultivar reference works started by Murray Hornibrook in 1923 and added to every 20 - 30 years by subsequent conifer specialists. The high quality photography shows the general appearance of the plants, and in many cases details special features. Many were photographed in summer and winter to show colour and texture changes through the seasons. The book is designed to meet the needs of professionals as well as amateur gardeners.]
