The RHS Birthday Book Summary

The RHS Birthday Book by Brent Elliott

Birthdays and anniversaries are never easy to remember. Unless they are stored in one place, they may need to be copied from diary to diary every year. This notebook is a place to keep all your birthdays together, and saving you this trouble, so that you will never have to suffer the embarrassment of forgetting an important birthday again. The RHS Birthday Book is illustrated with exquisite botanical drawings of medicinal plants taken from books by two physicians: William Woodville's Medical Botany (1790-93) illustrated by James Sowerby, the major English botanical artist of his generation, and Ferdinand Vietz's Icones Plantarum (1800-20) with drawings by the accomplished Viennese artist Ignaz Alberti. The spacious and stylish design of the RHS Birthday Book make it a practical and enduring gift, and the perfect accompaniment to the RHS Diary 2008 and the RHS Address Book, also published by Frances Lincoln.
