I bought this book about 8 years ago now and at the time it cost about €100 [possibly púnts at the time?]. If botany and intricate plant studies are what turns one on… then this is your cup of tea. Do understand this is not Sunday afternoon reading. It is a referene book. A bible as such for the horticulturist. If you are newbie to the horticultural sector – I’m not suggesting that this is not for you, but your use of it may be extremely limited and for the price there may be other books of better value.
It comes in 2 volumes, it weighes a tonne, It’s pricy and it’s a plants-persons dictionary. That said, for my library, a gem and a must have.
