SANDER. 4 vols. forming 2 Series, impl. folio, with 192 large and magnificently coloured plates; finely half bound in crushed Levant morocco extra, gilt tops, uncut; RARE (issued by the publishers, in half morocco, at £35). 1888-94 30 0 0 The binding of this copy is a marked advance on the regulation half morocco supplied by the publishers.
The growing popularity of Orchids, the ever-increasing demand for information respecting them, and the indifferent serial works relating to this lovely and important class of plants hitherto published, have furnished sufficient reasons for this great work. It was the aim of the authors to represent truthfully the natural aspect of the plants, which are drawn life-size, and in addition to the coloured illustrations, scientific drawings of the structural parts of the flowers have been given when desirable. Some of the plant-portraits are coloured by lithography, others are hand-painted, as was found expedient. To the detailed information respecting each plant are added
practical notes on its culture. It was the intention of the authors to illustrate all

Additional Notes by F. C. LEHMANN. Complete in 9 parts, square folio, with 87 handcoloured plates, 61 woodcuts, and a map; in the original wrappers
Only a few copies remain in this coloured state, and, as far as they can be supplied, are each offered at £8. 88, instead of at the subscription price of £13. 10s. Every desirable detail of each genus and species is reproduced, the whole being accurately coloured under the eyes of Miss Woolward.
For a substantial binding in half morocco 21s will be charged.
Orchid collectors and lovers of beautiful flowers should hasten to secure a subscription copy, as but three remain for sale.

[In the Press
"There are very many, not only among educated people who take an interest in science, but even among specialists, who will welcome a work of reasonable compass and handy form containing a trustworthy treatment of the various departments of Natural History by men who are familiar with, and competent to deal with, the latest results of scientific research. The first issued volume of the series deals with Molluscs and Brachiopods. The paper and print, and the number, accuracy, and beauty of the illustrations seem all that could be desired. Altogether, to judge from this first volume, the Cambridge Natural History' promises to fulfil all the expectations that its prospectus holds out."-Times.
There is no doubt that if the succeeding volumes are carried out upon the same plan as is that which we have just received, the Cambridge Natural History' will be an indispensable work; for it appeals to a far wider class than works upon Natural History generally do. . . . The volume before us can be read with profit by the zoologist, and there is a vast amount of matter which is interesting to those who like the tit-bits of science."-Daily Chronicle.
