Details

Joseph Hooker’s perilous explorations in the Himalayas between 1848 and 1851 resulted in the collection of some 5,000 different species of plants, none more celebrated than the rhododendrons. The three volumes of Rhododendrons of Sikkim-Himalaya (1849, 1851), with Hooker’s rough sketches transformed into lithographs by the botanical artist Walter Hood Fitch, were to have a lasting impact on British gardening. This facsimile edition presents the three volumes bound as one, along with short introductory essays. No jacket.
