A catalogue of John Nash's wood-engravings, and his early lithographs, etchings and engravings on metal, compiled by Jeremy Greenwood. John Nash (1893-1977) first produced wood-engravings as illustrations for literary periodicals, and then for books; these include Directions to Servants (1925) and The Shepheard's Calendar (1930). His interest in botanical subjects is shown by his illustrations for Flowers and Faces (1935), Wild Flowers in Britain (1938), and his own book on Poisonous Plants (1927). Many of the wood-engravings from these publications are featured in this volume.
