My parents' hobby of collecting King Penguins was I think what first interested me in books as a nipper. I was delighted to help them complete their collection by buying them Magic Books of Mexico at a truly extortionate price about 20 years ago.
I'm a botanical illustration junkie. I've got to have this book. The next one on my list is the Highgrove Florigelium, priced at a hefty US$21,000. My Tech Support Guy thinks that's too pricey, but I keep telling him it's TWO volumes for that price. Maybe he'll get me the book you posted as a consolation gift.
It's not all illustrations - it has 16 plates and 37 pages of text.
