[Latin text]. Octavo, with a large folding map, hand-coloured in outline. a folding table, (neatly repared at an early date), 30 copper engraved plates, (not bound in order), pp liv, 550, a little age-toned but very firm and sound, bound in a twentieth century half calf and marbled boards, very slightly scuffed. [ "A fundamental work in plant geography" - Stafleu & Cowan. From the library of the nurseryman Will Ingwersen, with his bookplate on the front endpaper. This also contains the signature of Joannes Fraser, and many neat manuscript annotations and corrections throughout the text; some place names are underlined lightly in red ink on the map also. The cintents of the plates has been written on the blank leaves at the rear. It seems likely that this is John Fraser the younger, a nurseryman and traveller.]
