ADAMSON, R. S., AND T. M. SALTER (EDITORS)
Flora of the Cape Peninsula
(Cape Town: Juta, 1950). . 8vo; original green cloth, lettered in gilt on spine; no dustwrapper; endpaper maps; pp. xix + (i) + 889, incl. index. A little fishmothing to cloth; ink stamp to fly-leaf; accession code penned to tail of spine, front free endpaper, and rear free endpaper recto; very occasional fox spot. Good to very good condition. 'The lack of descriptions of the plants of the Cape Peninsula in a convenient form has been felt for a long time by botanists, teachers, students, and even more by visitors and others with an interest in the beauties and curiosities of our exceedingly rich flora. It is to meet the needs of these that the present book has been prepared. It deals with all the vascular plants, and while not what is termed a "popular" book and without illustrations, is not overloaded with detail or with technicalities. It is intended to meet the need of the serious student and still to be of value to the amateur. It may be compared with the regional floras of many parts of the northern hemisphere.".

GRABANDT, KEES (COMPILER)
Weeds of Crops and Gardens in Southern Africa
(Johannesburg: CIBA-GEIGY, 1985) 0620087617. . Folio; pictorial papered boards; pictorial dustwrapper (housed in removable protector); pp. xiii + 134 + [134] + [xiv - xvii]; 134 full-page colour illustrations, largely by Barbara Jeppe. Ink stamp to copyright page. Fine condition. "This publication contains one hundred and thiry-four beautiful illustrations: ninety-one by Barbara Jeppe and forty-three by graduates of the scientific drawing class of the famous Karl Schmid of the Zürich School of Applied Art in Switzerland. The description of the plants is kept to a minimum because the quality of the prints is of such a high standard that the plants can be easily identified without detailed descriptions which would make the book unnecessarily bulky. However, a description of the physiology, reproduction and growth is included because these aspects should be thoroughly considered by the control measures to obtain cost-effective weed control.".

MOLL, E J, AND OTHERS
A Description of Major Vegetation Categories in and Adjacent to the Fynbos Biome
(Pretoria: Cooperative Scientific Programmes, Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, 1984) 0798830190. . South African National Scientific Programmes Report No. 83, March 1984. 298 x 210 mm; saddle-stitched printed wrappers; pp. vi + 29; map; tables. Wrappers partially sunned. Very good condition. 'The fynbos biome, which closely approximates the geographic area of the Cape Floristic Kingdom (Goldblatt 1978, Kruger 1979a), has received little syntaxonomic treatment, and Acocks's (1953) treatment has had to suffice as an overall vegetation classification of the biome. Over the years it has become clear that Acocks's treatment is inadequate and Acocks himself stated that the subdivision of mountain fynbos into Macchia and False Macchia was like "dividing the tropical vegetation of South Africa into grassveld and bushveld". Apart from the problems of an inadequate classification, a precise and generally acceptable definition of "fynbos" has so far eluded botanists; and this has led to confusion amongst other environmentalists. Since 1978, concomitant with the emergence of the Fynbos Biome Project, there has been an upsurge of research activity in the biome. As part of the initial baseline study phase of the project many workers have undertaken descriptive studies aimed at mapping, classification and characterization of biome vegetation both on an intensive and extensive scale.'.
