Blunt, Wilfred and William T. Stern.

This major work, first published in 1950, is still considered the classic work on the subject.  The book was revised and enlarged by ACC in the year 2000, and published to overwhelming acclaim; this is a redesigned version of that edition.   It provides a comprehensive, critical and well-illustrated survey of the portrayal of plants over more than three thousand years.   This edition includes 126 colour plates (more than twice as many as the original 1950 edition) and 140 black and white illustrations, thus making available to the general public numerous examples of the work of great botanical illustrators past and present.
