[1904 - 1941]. Vegetationsbilder. Series 1 - Series 26 part 4, [lacking Series 5, Series 8 part 8, Series 12 parts 5 + 6, Series 13 parts 1 - 4]. Each Series comprises 8 parts. Series 1 - 4 are bound in rather worn cloth-backed boards, the rest are in parts, loose in paper covers as issued, (many covers are worn or detached, but contents throughout are good). Very heavy - extra postage will be required. {An amazing work: a series of fine photographic plates - collotypes, I think - with accompanying text. Each part is complete in itself; and whilst some are thematic - tropical nut-trees, Mexican cacti and succulents, Amazonian epiphytes, Californian conifers etc - the great majority of the work is phytogeographical, with fine portraits of plants and vegetation of a large range of countries - Western Lapland, Northwest Argentina, Socotra, Togo, Southwest Alaska, Arizona, Samoa, Juan Fernandez, Mesopotamia, Kurdestan, Uruguay, Central China, Cuba, Guatemala, Costa Rica and many dozens more}. A rare chance to obtain such an extensive run. [German text]
