AS one might naturally expect from the scant attention which has hitherto been given to the study of forestry in this country, our literature on the subject is by no means what it ought to be. True, we have several standard works, excellent of their kind, which, however, deal with trees more from a sylvicultural than from a botanical aspect. Students of forestry, and especially students of forest botany, and all those interested in the growth and cultivation of trees, have long felt the great want of a suitable text-book or guide to their studies, but happily now, with the appearance of the above handbook from the facile pen of Prof. Marshall Ward, this want has become a thing of the past.
