An extremely rare group of three botanical microscopical studies by James Hornell.
Research has only shown one other single copy in a Jersey museum and it seems very likely that the run of three consecutive parts illustrated here were all that was produced.
Complete and in good condition, compiled with tipped in black and white photomicrographs, presumably taken by Hornell.
