Small octavo, pp viii, 92, (ii), 93-108, very clean internally, recently bound in simple boards with paper title label on the spine, a very good copy. [This copy is a curiosity of edition and pagination. The original work of 1860 seems to extend, always, to 92 pages. Our copy has an extra errata leaf, unpaginated. This is then followed by a supplement paginated 93-108. Freeman 1325 mentions that the supplement was re-issued with the Flora and dated 1872. David McClintock's copy (see Maggs Brothers Catalogue 1337) confirms the date as 1872 and comments "the author explains in his preface that he had 300 copies of the first edition left, so he gave them a new title and added an 18pp supplement". But our copy definitely is the first printing, and with a 16pp supplement. I offer no explanation !! But certainly, in whatever form, the supplement is rare.]
