THE CABARET OF PLANTS: BOTANY AND THE IMAGINATION
Written by Richard Mabey.
Stock no. 1825321
Published by Profile Books. Circa 2015. Nearly fine condition in a slightly better than very good dustwrapper.

Ranging widely across science, art and cultural history, poetry and personal experience, Mabey puts plants centre stage, and reveals a true botanical cabaret, a world of tricksters, shape-shifters and inspired problem-solvers, as well as an enthralled audience of romantics, eccentric amateur scientists, transgressive artists and grass roots botanophiles. This book celebrates the idea that plants are not simply 'the furniture of the planet', but vital, inventive, individual beings, worthy of respect. Navy cloth boards, gilt title to spine. Pictorial endpapers and colour illustrations. ISBN: 9781861976628. Second printing. Pictorial dustwraper is a little grubby to rear panel.
