First published in 1958, The Englishman's Flora collects common names, folklore, rhymes, literary references and snips from old herbals about a huge range of British native and naturalised plants. Most of the entries are English, though. I'm sure Mabey knew, and was inspired by Grigson's book. Why have this, then, when you could have Mabey's colour photos? Well, the contents aren't totally superceded by Mabey and Grigson is easier to refer to. I have both, and wouldn't part with either.

Poems by Geoffrey Grigson
Poems by Geoffrey Grigson. The seventh and last son of an elderly clergyman from Pelynt in Cornwall, Grigson escaped a career with Colman's mustard to turn his hand variously to school teaching, journalism, broadcasting, radio. Grigson revelled in finding the extra-ordinary in the seeming ordinariness of a rural life that twentieth century short term thinking was beginning to eradicate. Grigson also wrote books to lead children into an appreciation of the countryside, poetry and the visual arts; later he became an 'anthologist's anthologist', with a seemingly endless train of collections of epigrams and epitaphs, nonsense verse, 'unrespectable' verse.
