Frank Rousseau's book on the proteaceae of South Africa. 

A number of species had already become extinct when the book was published, other species doomed to extinction and all fated to become more rare. So, Frank Rousseau was only just in time when he set out to make a complete photographic record of the South African Proteaceae. 

Not all the Proteaceae are shown in this book - there are nearly 400 distinct species in southern Africa - but the work is representative of the full range, and the brilliant and dramatic photographs have been reproduced throughout in full colour.
