Notes of Lessons on Elementary Botany

    Article metrics


    THIS little book is not altogether devoid of use; but the author has often sacrificed clearness at the shrine of ambition, in endeavouring to compress about three times too much matter into his pages. As it stands at present, it is fitted to take a place amongst the cram-books, and, like them, is often obscure, or even worse, from the point of view of accuracy. We should pity the child who endeavoured to get on without a large addition of oral help. Many of the figures might well be improved.
