Ordered "A Color Atlas of Plant Structure" from Amazon received it today.
It is excellent condition and a great book.

John, see what you started! If this keeps up we will have to change the name of this site to "Microbe and Botany" sites :)

CE and Rabitt, no thanks necessary. It is a very good book for both an experienced botanist and a neophyte like me.

Well met rabbit!
It's a cracking tome with some very good textual information that's easily overlooked as you are immediately seduced by the lovely pictures.
There are some excellent and easily followed sections in this little beauty - I learned an awful lot from this one. Also of course, when hand-sectioning you will, all being well, be able to use this book to identify tissue and cell types very well - this book is as good for live tissue as it is for microtome-sectioned 'full-blown' sections. Enjoy old chap! :)
