Die Pflanze Vorträge aus dem Gebiete der Botanik


THIS book may be placed by the side of Schleiden's “Die Pflanze und ihr Leben,” which was published in 1847, and ran to at least six editions in German, besides being translated into English, French, and Dutch. The English edition was translated by Henfrey, and was published in 1848; and it soon became a popular book, as it dealt with various aspects of plant-life in language intelligible to every one, without any loss of scientific accuracy and without any mixture of fable and fiction.
