McGregor-Robertson, J.

Book Description: Pair of clean hardbacks tightly bound in black half-leather over dark red cloth with gilt titles on red & green leather spine panels, all edges marbled, rubbing at corners, browning to endpapers, no inscriptions. Someone has used the books for pressing flowers & leaves, and some pages have minor browning as a consequence - most of the botanical specimens are still present, which may or may not be viewed as a bonus. Through-paginated, xxiv + 1104 pages, 32 illustrations on plates (some in colour), over 400 text illustrations, introduction by Professor McKendrick, index. No printed date, but text references place this after 1876, and the British Library copy is 1890.
