In recent years the value of the hand coloured flower/plant periodicals has increased and steadily continues to go higher. With the increased popularity the rate of destruction of these amazing publications are on the rise as well. We advocate conservation and preservation. More and more collectors orient themselves towards collecting the complete volumes as opposed to individual plates – treat the books well and you will be rewarded with better financial return in the future.
