V.g. Facsimile of computer database output, arranged alphabetically, listing virtually all known botanical periodicals with both standardised and variant titles. A bibliographic masterpiece, and one of the key reference works for plant taxonomists and botany librarians. This book also contains a number of more general titles, even including publications of the Quekett Microscopical Club. There is no index, but Appendix 1 contains a list of words and abbreviations with their often varied expanded equivalents. There is also a fascinating 'Political Chronology' (Appendix 2) giving details of places of publication (in English) and their historical variants. The book concludes with the wise epitaph by Alexander Pope: Whoever thinks a faultless piece to see, Thinks what ne'er was, nor is, nor ne'er will be. 1063 pp. As this is a heavy book, please ask for a transport quotation when ordering.
