Flowers in Britain


ONCE in a while a book appears which impresses the reader from the moment he first handles it. For a long time he has been conscious of a gap in contemporary literature that cries out to be filled; eventually a book appears, and the reader is immediately aware that this is the book for which he has been waiting. "Flowers in Britain" is unquestionably such a book. It was conceived with vision and has been nurtured with the assurance that such a book was badly needed.
