London: Whittaker and Co., 1854. Hardcover. First Edition. 8vo. Buckram spine with call number at top, titling below, marbled paper-covered boards with wear at edges. Ex-Library with bookplate on front pastedown. Endpapers have darkened considerably over time. Each month compiled within this volume has a vibrant, hand colored flower illustration as a frontispiece. The magazine was not published all twelve months of the year, no publication in May, June & October. The month of August is missing its plate, the plate and title page for the month of December is missing. Very Good.
