Still the standard work, with 255 plates & 3550 other illustrations

BACKEBERG, Curt.
Die cactaceae: Handbuch der Kakteenkunde.
Jena, Gustav Fischer, 1958-1962. 6 volumes. 8vo. With 3550 illustrations in the text and 255 plates. Publisher's original green cloth, with dust jackets, in 2 slipcases.
€ 1,250
Still an unsurpassed standard work. The result of 25 years of investigation and 7 international expeditions. Most of the illustrations are black & white half-tones (from photographs) but there are several 4-colour half-tones, colour diagrams, etc. The dust jacket for each of the 6 volumes has a different 4-colour half-tone on the front.
A very good set, with only a few small tears and reinforcements in the dust jackets. The classic cactus reference.
