First Edition; This two-volume set of the flora of Kashmir was a project initially begun by Professor Hallberg in 1921 with the assistance of the Bombay School of Art student, Haldar J. Walli, who drew about half of the illustrations for the colour plates. After Hallberg's untimely death in 1924 Blatter was asked to complete the work & did so, with the other half of the illustrations provided by Mrs. G. A. Wathen who had painted them in 1919 & presented them to Hallberg. Both volumes bear a signed inscription from the artist Melicent Wathen (Mrs. G. Wathen)
