New York: Published by Peter Henderson & Co. In preparing this work Mr. Henderson has added largely to the gratitude American horticulturists already owe him. It is somewhat on the plan of Paxton's and Johnson's dictionaries, with the explanatory style of Lindley & Moore's Treasury of Botany. It is, in fact, a brief but intelligent history of plants from an American standpoint, the plants described being such as an American is likely to come across, either in his readings or daily experience. It will be a standard book of reference for many years to come.
