by Douglas Houghton Campbell - Ginn
An introduction to the study of botany for use in high schools especially, but sufficiently comprehensive to serve also as a beginning book in most colleges. It does not pretend to be a complete treatise of the whole science.
by Julius A. Palmer - L. Prang & Co
This book for popular use, rather than for students of botanical science; all technical terms are, therefore, as far as possible, avoided. The identification of species is a safe guide, and is the only means of knowing what mushrooms should be eaten.
by William S. Furneaux - Longmans, Green
This volume is an attempt to provide a guide to the study of our wild plants, shrubs and trees -- a guide which, though comparatively free from technical terms and expressions, shall yet be strictly correct and scientific.
