About this book

Bibliographies are fascinating sources of information and invaluable to researchers of the topics they cover. As the authors explain in the introduction, this special publication has been a long time in preparation, but the extensive checking and re-checking has resulted in a book that is as complete as the authors could make it. Here can be found details of authors, titles with details of their publishers, editions and reprints, books of pressed fems, catalogues of ferns for sale and advertising ephemera. Some of these books are comparatively common, but others are incredibly rare.

Fern Books will be the starting place for any pteridologist, librarian or bibliophile interested in books on fems. It will enable them to assess their collections and look out for necessary additions. However, I have to add a warning here: beware collecting fern books can become addictive.
