164 pp, large 8vo (10 1/4"). 70 watercolors by E.J. Revell. "In seventy exquisite watercolours E.J. Revell has captured the beauty of plants found by early travellers in North America - from Ash to Wintergreen, Bittersweet to Wappatoo, the common Bedstraw and the uncommon Camass, the edible Fiddlehead and the ubiquitous Dandelion. Accompanying each painting are quotations from a variety of explorers and settlers, describing the plants and reflecting the practical, aesthetic, and botanic interests of newcomers in different parts of the country. The result is an intriguing mixture of native knowledge and frontier wisdom which provides a picture of life in a new land." Dust jacket has some darkening to panels and edges, minor edge wrinkling.
