If anyone is interested there is a review of the book in the June '98
Quarterly Bulletin of the Alpine Garden Society (UK) by Chris Grey-
Wilson, botanist - I'll summarise his main points:
'20 colour plates, b & w photos'
'33 text drawings, 27 maps'
'each species precisely described and relationships assessed'
'useful and workable key to the species and varieties'
'colour reproduction crude, b & w photos dull and poor'
'binding really awful'
'useful reference to gardeners and botanists'
