You live in the antiquarian book lovers mecca!
Consult "Sheppard's book dealers in the British Isles" 1992 (17th ed), pub
by Richard Joseph. A dealer with e-mail is Wheldon & Wesley. Their last cat
had c.500 botanical items. <10087.SQQ1328 at goldgate.ac.uk>.
There is more information on file at the sunsite.unc.edu gopher:-
in sunsite archives/ecology & evolution/misc/book.dealers last time I looked.
I'm preparing a new edition of that file & will send it out to those
interested later in the month.
