vintage printed matter

I found this treasure of local botanical literature tucked away at a secondhand bookshop here in downtown Victoria.

Printed by Charles F Banfeild, Printer to the Kings Most Excellent Majesty
1925


The subject matter of the manual was prepared by James R Anderson, veteran naturalist, and one of the leaders among the pioneer botanists of British Columbia.
