Written by experienced gardeners, this was the first book written in English specifically about bromeliads. There are 130 color photos and 25 drawings throughout, plus helpful quick reference lists. The text block is square, tight, and bright. There is light foxing on the top of the text block, and a musty odor, but the pages and cover are unmarked. There is shelf wear on the unclipped dust jacket, but none of the aging affects the usefulness of the book.
