One of only 500 copies. Reginald John Farrer (1880-1920), traveller and plant-hunter, died in the remote Minshan mountains in Upper Burma at the early age of 40. 'This volume originated from the desire of a number of Reginald Farrer's gardening friends and admirers to learn the number of his plants of the Kansu and Upper Burma expeditions that are in cultivation'.
