David Mabberley is now Keeper of the Herbarium at the Royal Botanic Gardens, 
Kew, but you are right in all other details! Part of his duties there 
includes control of the treasure trove of botanical art at Kew.

The third edition of his magnum opus, now entitled 'Mabberley's Plant Book' 
has just been published. I have yet to acquire a copy, but it is an urgent 
priority, as no other botanical book compares for its wealth of information. 
I have two copies of the second edition, one in the living room and one in 
my study.
