Spring has sprung, and the flowers are flowering! Also I’ve got a bad case of polyptoton! In honor of the May flowers that are becoming so abundant, I offer for your perusal two recently acquired books on flowers that will be added to the Hamilton Collection here at the Redwood.
The Redwood holds in its coffers many books. For the most part, these are whole. And a library often does not set out to buy books which are incomplete. Sometimes, we might buy or retain a book which is imperfect because it is the only state available. Or perhaps the imperfection itself tells us an interesting piece of the history of the book. But it is less common to have individual leaves of books in a library.
