Within the text there are another seven coloured plates. Green coloured cloth covered boards with dark green embossed colour title to the front panel and backstrip. There is a square photographic cameo, same photograph as for frontispiece. An early book on the cultivation of orchids. No publication data is readily available, but given the book's production values, probably 1920s. This book is definitely showing its age!
