[MAGAZINE]. A FLORAL WORLD AND GARDEN GUIDE. London: Groombridge and Sons, 1858-1876. 19 volumes. Each volume collects a year's periodical issues; and each is illustrated throughout with wood- engraved text illustrations. Most volumes include some plates. Later years, from 1869 to 1876, include a dozen full color plates in each volume. The 19 volumes offered here contain a total of 117 plates, of which 106 are color. The first six volumes are bound in publisher's decorated brown cloth and the remaining volumes in publisher's decorated dark green cloth. There is occasional spotting throughout the text and to the odd plate. About three of the plates from the later volumes have a moderate crease. Some minor wear at heads and extremities of volumes, yet an appealing set. A run of this length is seldom seen.
