I've got a few nice fern-books and I wonder if anyone out there might
be interested to buy them? It is because of my imminent trip to the
UK - just at the time when I haven't much salary from the British
volunteer-sending company I work for - no one seems to like Nepal too
much right now!
I could bring some of them with me to Britain in a couple of weeks
if there were some interested people, though some of them are fairly
expensive to get hold of.
The books I have are:
Thomas Moore's Octavo Nature Printed British Ferns (1860) - very
Edward Young's Ferns of Wales (1856) - contains "plates" which are
original pressed specimens; a pretty rare book, in nice condition.
Edward Lowe's Ferns, British and Exotic (1856-60) - in 8 volumes.
(though I rather need this one!)
Edward Lowe's A Natural History of New and Rare Ferns (1860-61).
Francis Heath's Fern Portfolio (1885).
e-mail me on chrisophilus@...
if someone wants any of them.
