Plant Hunter In Manipur

London: Cape, 1952

8vo. pp. 254. Index and foldout map. Original blue boards, lettered in silver to spine. A fine copy in a near fine, unclipped dustwrapper, slight dulling to spine and with just the lightest edgewear to head of spine.

First edition.

As well as a mastery of his subject, Francis Kingdon-Ward [1885-1958] had a deep curiosity about the terrain and people he encountered during his botanical expeditions. The result was a series of absorbing travel-cum-textbooks, engagingly written, attractive to the general reader as well as the specialist, whose author was one of the forefathers of popular science.

An unusually well-preserved copy in the dustwrapper.
