Item ID 37273
Malton, [unpublished], 1930. Folio album (36.6 x 26.6 cm). Handwritten index on front pastedown and front flyleaf recto. Embossed, blue cloth with gilt title "The Dry Garden" on the front board. A fine herbarium of about 140 pressed specimens with their English names and a neatly handwritten index of all species. The species are grouped according to genus. Several leaves are deliberately left blank, apparently to leave room for additional specimens. Specimens are British and from the Continent, and are true species, varieties or hybrids. Dried plants are on leaves 3, 8, 11, 12, 13, 19, 21, 24, 24 verso, 25, 27, 28, 33, 34, 37, 38. All the plants are very well preserved. Paper lightly age-toned, otherwise in very good condition. A very good, clean, and unique item. A fine, well-preserved herbarium of heathers
