Alpine Plants of Europe by H.S. Thompson

Regular price €50.00

 This book owes it origin chiefly to the fact that there is no well-illustrated work in the English language descriptive of the Flowering Plants of the whole range of the Alps. The aim has been to give botanical descriptions of the more beautiful and interesting species indigenous to the High Alps and other mountains of Europe, and some which are found chiefly in subalpine districts, together with a few Southern rock-plants, but which should never ben called 'Alpine', as is too often the case. Some 700 species, and a few marked varieties, are here described.
