Flora ekskursioniste e Shqiperise - Albania

Flora ekskursioniste e Shqiperise

Bookshop: Bookshop

During our 1988 trip across Albania, we had an Albanian guide in second who was a forestry ingeneer. He had with him a superb flora 600 pages of Albania “Flora ekskursioniste e Shqiperise”. When we were back to Tiranë, I asked our French speaking Albanian guide to help me get a copy of it. We visited half a dozen bookshops. They all had shelves loaded with the works of Enver Hoxha, of Marx and Engels but the Flora was out of print. We finally found a book shop that had one copy of this marvelous flora that I use each time that in the Balkans, I have a plant that I cannot identify otherwise. Of course, I had to buy Fjalor Frengjisht-Shqip and Fjalor Shqip- Frengjisht (dictionaries) in order to be able to use it.
