This is a 3 volume 8 vo.set of John Lindley's books called Pomologia Britannica.It was published in London in 1841 by Henry Bohn It was one of the best color plate fruit books ever put out.The hand coloring is of the finest quality and all 152 plates are in perfect condition with no foxing or staining. The set is in its original bindings with raised leather spines. The covers are all intact with no broken boards but the gutta percha spine on vol 2 has let loose.These were not bound with sewn signatures.There are a couple of loose pages in vol 3.Every thing is complete. I could only find 2 other sets for sale and they were much more than I am asking.
