The Royal Horticultural Society Address Book features floras from the collection of the world famous Lindley Libraries. A flora is an account of the plants of a given country or district. The earliest floras were little more than lists, but once botanists started exploring foreign countries and describing unfamiliar plants, illustrated floras began to appear. Over the past three centuries, many of the best portraits of plants have been published in floras, and many of the greatest botanical artists have been employed in illustrating them. This address book draws on the work of artists like Ferdinand Bauer and Pieter van Koowenhoorn, as well as figures less familiar today, and includes plants selected from England, Greece, Portugal, the Himalayas, and Australia. The illustrations range in date from the second half of the eighteenth century to the nineteenth century. The address book has a storage pocket, a stepped tabbed index, ribbon marker and is illustrated in colour throughout. A companion diary is also available.

The Royal Horticultural Society Lindley Libraries hold several collections of drawings made by Asian artists, whether made for the export market to Europe, commissioned by British officials, or, in recent times, made by amateur and professional artists for exhibition and sale in the international market for botanical art. Most of the drawings are by Chinese artists, and date from the nineteenth century, when Chinese plants were being introduced into Britain by collectors, some of them working for the Horticultural Society. Probably the earliest of the Society's oriental drawings came from an album compiled in Canton around 1800. Also included are drawings from Icones Plantae Japonicae, but the drawings are very much in the Chinese rather than the Japanese style. The earliest coloured Japanese illustrations in the RHS collection come from a piece of work entitled "A hundred chrysanthemums," by Keika Hasegawa, printed around 1891. Some of the drawings in this address book were made in Sri Lanka, by Harmanis De Alwis, an artist working for the Ceylon Botanic Garden.

Each week features a full-page colour illustration and the diary includes the dates of all the RHS Flower Shows as well as national and religious holidays and astronomical information.
