  1. Caitlin Fitzsimmons

    Beautifully presented book that provides a potted history of botany illustrated with lovely images, both photographs and botanical illustrations. I particularly like the fact that the book features many female botanists who are uncredited in most conventional histories. It would make a good gift for a plant lover or avid gardener in your life. – Caitlin Fitzsimmons via GoodReads
