By Charles Baltet. William Robinson, 37 Southampton Street, London. A volume of over 200 pages devoted to grafting and budding by a Frenchman of great experience in the art. It is a translation of M. Baltet's L'Art de Greffer. The object of grafting and the conditions of its success, the proper season, and the methods of grafting, are all very minutely and clearly treated of. Indeed, from the numerous wood engravings with which the subject is illustrated in all its details, the merest novice may see at a glance how all sorts of budding and grafting are performed. It is the most perfect work on the subject which has yet appeared, and we recommend it to all who are interested in it, - and that includes a. wide range.
