Plant Hunters

PLANT HUNTING IN CHINA by EHM Cox. This is a fascinating account of the history of plant collecting in China by western botanists from the seventeenth century to the middle of the 1950s. Many of the most popular flowers in European gardens originated when early missionaries and traders brought home some of the finest forms of Chinese flora. In the modern period, the major collectors made thoroughly organized searches to secure plants that would grace European and American gardens. This edition contains a new introduction by the author's son, Peter Cox, a knowledgeable horticulturist and author of numerous articles and books on horticultural subjects. The text is complemented by photos and maps. Hardback with dust jackect, dj faded, very tidy copy with coloured plate frontispiece.
