New York, New York, U.S.A. Reinhold Publishing Corporation 1966 Hard Copy Very Good Good+ 4to - over 9" - 12" tall

Dust jacket is in Good+ condition: chipping, 2 small closed tears, rubbing, and fading on edges. From the dust jacket: "A first glance through this unusual book will indicate the fascinating world of design to be found in plants. Every artist, designer, sculptor, architect, teacher, student and nature lover will find an astonishing new vocabulary of forms in this introduction to the obvious in nature which often escapes our attention. Your eyes will be taught to see what nature puts here, grasses, seedpods, mosses, lichens -- season after season, free for the taking -- in meadows, forests and your own backyard, just as Dr. Bertel Bager has discovered them over the years in his walks through the countryside in many parts of the world. Handsomely illustrated in large detail with an interestingly written and informative text, and a complete section on the popular and scientific name of each plant, this is a book with extra dividends for everyone, since an interest is engendered for a lifetime of enrichment on every stroll or excursion. The designs and 'collectable' forms of beauty assembled here will stimulate the creative imagination of every creative artisan to new possibilities and horizons in design."
