Detailed Information for Seller's item number: 4210
Snowdrops, a monograph of Cultivated Galanthus
Author: Bishop, Matt : Davis, Aaron : Grimshaw, John:
Publisher: Maidenhead, Griffin Press, 2006 (2nd revised printing)

370pp with over 200 full colour plates, and pictorial endpapers. This book needs no introduction to serious gardeners as, being a definitive title, it is highly regarded : this copy is from the 2nd revised printing which has been updated on the 2001 edition with an enlarged section on snowdrop suppliers and gardens, and an additional easy-to-use alphabetical index to the cultivars. "Snowdrops is the product of five years of research and careful observation. Untangling the myths, but retaining the mystique, it presents a new look at the histories and descriptions of more than 500 Galanthus cultivars, many of which are recorded here for the first time. Extensive notes on the origins and affinities of each snowdrop are given, as well as description compiled from a series of authenticated specimens. Written for gardeners, the book enables anyone to identify a named snowdrop by simple observation of its flowers and leaves. Cultivation and propagation are covered, including a section on the modern technique of twin-scaling. Another chapter presents biographies of eminent galanthophiles, whose stories are so often part of the flowers' fascination, and describes how interest in snowdrops has ebbed and flowed over the years. Stunning photography is a feature of the book, including numerous specially taken close-up images, many of snowdrops that have never been illustrated before."
