British Flowering Plants


    THERE are many pleasing features in this small book that treats of flowering plants in a popular way. The illustrations, if a trifle over-coloured, are characteristic, and the author describes the plants in a sufficiently technical manner to permit of their identification; on the other hand, the book hardly gives an adequate idea of the importance of the different orders, and, so many foreign plants are selected for illustration that the most popular method of determination is not provided for commoner British plants.
