About This Item

London: George Routledge and Sons A very good to near fine copy of Profitable Plants, which was originally published under the title Popular Economic Botany by Lovell Reeve as part of their Popular Natural History series. It is undated but probably circa 1865 and is unusual in retaining the original decorative spine design from the Popular Natural History series. It is a scarce title and is complete with hand coloured frontispiece and 19 further hand coloured plates. The binding has slight darkening to edges and slight wear to edges including spine joints (slight scuff at rear joint). Spine ends are lightly pulled. The original yellow endpapers are present. Contents are in very good to near fine clean condition.

Other areas include children's books, particularly late 1800's-early 1900's - again illustrated; and literature pre 1900.When you order books from us we ensure that they are properly packed to protect condition, and we always use recorded or 'signed for' postal services for more secure delivery. Please note that we have recently moved to the beautiful Orkney Islands, where we intend to open a bookshop over the next year.
