Publisher's description: In Botanical Riches, Richard Aitken has compiled a magnificent collection of the world's most gloriously engraved, lithographed and hand-coloured botanical illustrations. From the earliest Renaissance herbals, to the more elaborate and beautiful volumes from the birth of printing, books celebrating plants from far-off lands brought with them a sense of wonder. With illustrations of extraordinary splendour and beauty, Botanical Riches is a colourful history and enthralling tales of botanical exploration.
