Flower Paintings from the Apothecaries' Garden: Contemporary Botanical Illustrations from Chelsea Botanical Garden by Andrew Brown (£49.00)Publisher: Woodbridge: Antique Collectors' Club — 2005Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1851495037]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper slightly faded at the spine otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Contains: Colour plates; Colour frontispiece; Illustrated endpapers and blanks; Title page vignette;

From the cover: “This book is a celebration of the work of the first ten years of Chelsea Physic Garden Florilegium Society. The Society, founded in 1995, is a group of artists charged with the task of recording in watercolour paintings the flora of Britain’s second oldest botanic garden, founded in 1673 by the Society of Apothecaries. About 200 paintings by fifty-six artists have been accessed to the Physic Garden archives.

Flower Paintings from the Apothecaries’ Garden contains fifty-six colour reproductions of paintings, one by each artist. The plants depicted range from small alpines to magnificent trees and from food plants to those which yield life-saving drugs, for although the Physic Garden was founded for the teaching of apothecaries, it has always been a garden for the growing of the novel and the exotic. From its founding, throughout the eighteenth and earlier part of the nineteenth centuries, the Physic Garden was an international focal point for botanical endeavour.

Each of the colour plates is accompanied by information about the plant’s uses and, for some, the cultivation history at Chelsea, together with biographical details of the artist.

Also included are a short essay on the role of botanical illustration today, a brief history of the Chelsea Physic Garden Florilegium Society and a listing of the complete archive to date, including paintings and ink drawings.”

Fine Herbs: Ornamental Plants for the Garden by Deni Bown (£12.50)Publisher: Unwin Hyman — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0044401337]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Diagrams; Tables;

From the cover: “The growing of herbs in our gardens, usually for culinary purposes, has enjoyed a great revival in recent years. The pleasure of brushing past sweet-smelling herbs on a summer’s evening and the satisfaction of picking fresh mint, parsley and thyme to enhance a recipe are familiar to many gardeners. It is perhaps a less familiar endeavour to try growing herbs that are beautiful plants in their own right — to grow variegated or coloured varieties that add interest and distinction to the garden.

In this book the author has selected over forty such plants to tempt the keen gardener — who could resist a double flowered celandine or golden variegated jasmine? — and describes their cultivation, history, medicinal and culinary uses with detailed and infectious enthusiasm.

Here, for anyone interested in herbs, is a book to add an extra dimension to their knowledge and to provide a source of inspiration for every plantsman and woman.”

From the cover: “HERBS HAVE LONG BEEN PRIZED for their scents, medicinal properties and extraordinary seasoning qualities. There is an enormous diversity of herbs available to the general user, though the full extent of their uses is often unrealised. This new volume provides both an up-to-date guide to all the most popular herbs and their uses, and also a practical manual to home cultivation. Many herbs can be grown easily at home, both indoors and outdoors, in anything from small pots to large gardens.

GROWING HERBS:

The first section of this book explains all the traditional and modern gardening techniques needed to create a rewarding and successful herb garden at home. Practical step-by-step sequences demonstrate how to plan and design a herb garden, build pathways and clip hedges and topiary, as well as illustrating how to combine herbs for fragrance and healing, produce a perfect container garden, and how to grow and store herbs inside the home.

A-Z OF HERBS:

The second section of the book is a botanical A-Z encyclopaedia of herbs, detailing over 150 common and lesser-known varieties of plant, and providing growing tips as well as essential information on their medicinal, culinary and scented properties. Clear information about every herb listed provides instant recognition and identification, and notes on related species are given to ensure a full breadth of coverage.”

Natural Remedies for Allergies by Paul Morgan (£10.50)Publisher: Parragon — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0752525379]Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled at the edges.Description: From the cover: “Allergies have become something of an obsession in the 1990s: press reports talk of ‘an allergy to life’; and scientists tell that the extraordinary increase in allergy cases over the last century can be put down to environmental pollution as a result of the increasing industrialization of society. This book shows allergy sufferers that there are other ways to reduce the risk of provoking an allergic response and of treating one if it occurs. First, it cuts through the jargon, using clear no-nonsense language to explain what allergies are and what causes them, before discussing the pros and cons of conventional medical treatment. Then it discusses the various types of allergy, from food allergies to allergic skin conditions, with cross-references to the various types of natural treatment that follow. Next the book shows how natural remedies — from herbal medicines, elimination diets and homeopathy to stress-management techniques — can help by both alleviating the symptoms of an allergic response and prevent one from occurring.”Notes: Size: 9¾" x 7".

Practical Nursing and Anatomy for Pupil Nurses by Jane Forrest (£9.50)Publisher: Edward Arnold — 1968Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with wear and loss at the spine ends and corners, several short closed tears.Description: 1st Reprint. [First: 1966] From the flap: “The aim of this book is to provide a good foundation of basic facts which will guide the pupil and enrolled nurse to a wider knowledge and understanding of the care of the patient. Anatomy and Physiology is not treated as a separate, rather dull subject, but is shown to be closely allied to the diseases and treatments which the nurse encounters daily on the wards. The information contained in the book is presented as simply as possible with explanations of technical terminology given where necessary. A large number of cross references are given as a further aid to study. Nurses should be encouraged to get into the habit of using them, since they establish links which connect one fact with another until a more complete picture of the subject is obtained. “Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

From the cover: “Over the past twenty years there has been a growing public awareness of our native wild flowers, and an increasing concern for the future of these fascinating and beautiful plants.

In Creating a Wild Flower Garden Jonathan Andrews explains how comparatively easy it is to create suitable habitats for wild plants in your own gardens and provides simple instructions for the cultivation of some of the more familiar and some of the less obvious wild flowers.

Illustrated with Edith Holden’s exquisite paintings from her Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady, the author also retells some of the many legends which surround each of the flowers and their past culinary,- herbal and medicinal applications. Month-by-month guides to the maintenance of the wild flower garden are included with suggested garden plans, plants to grow in order to attract butterflies and moths, and addresses of seed merchants who now specialise in wild flowers.

Whether your interest is the conservation of wild plants or a nostalgic desire to grow once familiar wild flowers, this book acts as an introduction to the joy of cultivating our native flora.”

Adventurer's Paradise by Alastair Scobie (£8.50)Publisher: London: The Travel Book Club — 1955Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with light fraying to the spine ends and corners. Tanning to the blanks. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps [1];

From the cover: “Alastair Scobie spends his time in the wilder parts of East Africa looking for trouble — principally wild-animal trouble. With a film camera and gun he wanders over the long plains and steep passes of Northern Kenya, ankle deep in volcanic dust, or through gorilla and rhino tunnels, forced passages in the massed bamboo forests of the “Mountains of the Moon” on the edge of the Congo. Wherever he goes he seeks sensation for the entertainment of the millions who take their thrills vicariously through the medium of cinema or television.

His book is packed with stories of his adventures and of the fantastic characters, white and black, in whose company he has found a wild and esoteric pleasure. Some of them may be crazy, some utterly degenerate, some plain savage, but the hilarious tales of their primitive lives, packed helter-skelter between the thrills of his more frightening moments in putting on film the dangers of the wild, make a book which cannot fail to keep any armchair-traveller awake into the small hours.

There have been many books of big-game hunting, but your big-game hunter does not go on safari asking for trouble ; he would much rather shoot his lion or rhino from a safe distance than wait for it to come full tilt at him face to face. For the free-lance movie cameraman the goal is just that. He can only sell action — close-up action — and if the camera doesn’t get out from under quickly enough that merely means another camera — and perhaps another cameraman. Alastair Scobie has so far managed to get out from under in the nick of time.”
