Plant Marvels in Miniature. A Photographic Study. With a Foreword by C.D. Darlington. George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., London, 1960. Quarto. Linen over boards. 173 pp., 77 gravure plates.

This extraordinary book provides the viewer with a scientific look at the plant world. In design, the book is similar to Karl Blossfeldt's works. The black-and-white photographs were made using close-up lenses, and in some cases, a microscope at over 1000 magnification. All are beautifully reproduced in gravure. Each "portrait" includes concisely written descriptions of the plant.

A Very Fine, tight copy, exhibiting a bit of a corner bump at the top of the text block at the spine throughout the book. Cloth is fresh and clean.

Dustjacket chipped and torn; Vroman's Pasadena bookstore 1x1" label on top of front free endpaper; otherwise Fine. This beautifully printed series of photographs of the plant world is also in photogravure.

Life Under the Microscope. Text by Academician Otto Jírovec Professor of the Charles University, Prague; Dr. Bedrich Boucek, Professor of the Charles University, Prague; Professor Jirí Fiala, Head of the Photo-department of the Biological Institute (Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences). Translated by Margaret Schierl. Spring Books, London, 1959. Third printing 1964. Another gorgeous book of plant and insect photographs. Printed in gravure.
