Good; cover sl. soiled, lower tips of spines sl. bumped. One of the most sumptuous botanical libraries, amassed by Arpad Plesch, came up for sale on 16 and 17 June 1975 at a time of rip-roaring inflation in the UK economy; unsurprisingly, the books fetched record prices. This well-illustrated catalogue has become a collector's item. Includes list of prices realised and names of purchasers, loosely inserted: the sale fetched £197,237.
