Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book is highly recommended for all readers." The Library of the Chicago Botanical Garden, Marilyn K. Alaimo

"What makes this book most remarkable is Hay's photography, which is simply outstanding...While this work has the finish adn flair of a standard-fare coffee-table book, it is certainly more than just a collection of pretty images. There is enough textual substance to give the reader a good glimpse into the history and nature of the National Herbarium of New South Wales, while the images, in these reviewers' opinions, are extraordinarily striking and leave a truly lasting impression." - Donald W. Brown, Assitant Librarian and Assitant Bibliographer, Jame Shriver, Assistant Archivist, Huntia
