The Little Botanist, 1835

Item number: BOO29121711

Price: $185

A fabulous old science book dating back to 1835. I have checked a website that this is a rare and valuable book before listing it here. The book is part of a series called Little Library. I believe there were two books on Botany, this being the first. The title of the book is:

"The Little Botanist; Steps to the Attainment og Biological Knowledge", by Caroline A. Halsted. It was publsihed in 1835 by John Harris, London. It has 243 pages, hardcover with leather spine, and gildered lettering. Overall it is in very good aged condition. The illustrations are drawn and engraved by J.D. Sowerby, from sketches of the authoress.
