PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

First edition first print hardback of THE PRIVATE LIFE OF PLANTS by David Attenborough and published by BBC Books in 1995. Signed by Attenborough on the half title page.

The book is in near fine condition (red cloth boards with gold lettering to spine) with no significant wear. The book is in a very good unclipped dust jacket which has very light creasing to the edges although this is not very noticable. Internally the pages are clean and tight with no tears or other inscriptions.

Without plants, there would be no food, no animals of any sort, no life on earth at all. Yet for most of the time their lives remain a secret to us, hidden, private events.

The reason is merely a difference of time. Plants live on a different time-scale from ours. Though not obviously to the naked eye, they are constantly on the move: developing, fighting, avoiding or exploiting predators or neighbours, struggling to find food, to increase their territories, to reproduce themselves, to find and hold a place in the sun. We only need to learn to look.


320 pages including Acknowledgements and Index. Illustrated with colour photographs.
