The propsecuts comprises a packet of unbound items, including: two variant brochures describing the florilegium, with illustrations; a color photograph of the two volumes, with the second volume open to the illustration of Helleborus orientalis; an untitled sheet with illustrations (on one side) by Richard Shirley Smith--presumably, this is a reproduction of the endpapers; an illustrated glossy folder, the interior pocket of which encloses all of the above.
"The Highgrove Florilegium (London: Addison Publicatons Ltd., 2008-2009) was published for The Prince's Charities Foundation. It is a two-volume fine art facsimile of original watercolors by several botanical artists of plants and trees growing at Highgrove in Gloucestershire, the home of TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. The print run was limited to 175 numbered copies (at £10,950 per copy) with a preface signed by HRH The Prince of Wales. Richard Shirley Smith's vignettes of features from the Highgrove garden were used as endpapers and throughout the text."--Moss.
