THIS little book is not primarily designed for the expert, but rather to enable the inexperienced to identify the various legume crop plants that are grown in Great Britain, and to explain their agricultural uses. It accomplishes its purpose very well and is written in a clear and readable style. The account of each legume commences with a description illustrated with excellent drawings. This is followed by a short outline of the crop's agricultural uses. A typical chemical analysis is given for most of the legumes described.
