Rare Iris Book for Sale
A bookseller has offered me a copy of Sir Michael Foster classic work BULBOUS
IRISES (London 1892). Many of the drawings in this work are by Caperne.
Condition is stated as some wear and fading; foxing in front and back.
Provenance: A. W. Tait, who was later Baron de Soutellinbo (bookplate and
signature). Includes 3 short cuttings, 2 by Foster and one by Dykes, and a
letter from Sir David Prain. Price; $450.00.
I have two copies of this marvelous book, but would buy this one if priced
lower. If I didn't have my copies, I would buy it at the price. I thought
someone on the list might like it. If so, contact me by email and I will
give you bookseller's name, address, and telephone nr. Clarence Mahan in VA
