Flanagan, Mark & Kirkham, Tony Wilson's China - a century on , London: Kew Publishing.

9781842463949 Very well illustrated, large quarto, pp 256, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [Ernest Wilson was the foremost plant collector of his generation, responsible for introducing over 1,000 species to our gardens in the West. The authors of this book reveal Wilson's adventures through excerpts from his own writings as well as describing their own experiences tracing his journeys in the wilds of China today. Wilson's legacy includes glass plate photographs taken in Sichuan at the beginning of the 20th century, depicting landscapes, villages, river scenes, people and plants, veteran and exceptional trees. Armed with copies of these images, and with the help of Chinese guides and local knowledge, the authors retraced Wilson's footsteps, taking photographs themselves. The result is a splendid series of 'then and now' images which are a key feature of this informative homage to a great plant hunter.] (Book ref. 005189 )  £ 28.00
