Handbook to the Ferns of British India, Ceylon and the Malay Peninsula
Beddome's original work, published in 1883, was a digest of other works on the subject with the aim of producing a comprehensive handbook. This revised edition was published following the author's retirement to England which gave him the opportunity to consult collections of ferns at the British Museum, Kew Botanical Gardens and elsewhere. The result was this more comprehensive book. Very Good Hardback. Revised Edition. 500 pages and 102 page supplement with 300 line drawings and an index.

Condition: The front and back cover still look amazing fresh, but the back cover has some rippling of the green cloth. The spine is sunned, but the gilt titling is still strong. The text block has minor spotting. The binding is tight and there is mild tanning throughout. A decent copy
