Einheimische Hilpflanzen (Indigenous Medicinal Plants)
1 Einheimische Hilpflanzen (Indigenous Medicinal Plants)
Munich Graser's Verlag Nachf, Schreiber & Co 1909 First Printing No. 23 Paper with Foldout 
TEXT IN GERMAN. A rare fold-out book of 44 multi colored drawings (reproductions) of medicinal plants that was published as a series of books on the natural sciences at the turn of the 20th century. The book has a very large fold out chart. which is in surprisingly fine condition and is beautiful to look at while it is fragile. Its bound into a folder like book with nice decorative covers and a pastedown of some of the plants. The covers have some light chipping and wear along with some spliting at the seams and a very tiny mends using acid free tape. As I said the fold out chart itself is lovely and quite fine. A rare gem.
