SOLD How To Know The Wild Flowers
A guide to the names, haunts and habits of our common wild flowers, by a certain Mrs William Starr Dana when it was still a good idea to publish your husband’s name. Interestingly enough, Dana’s voice is rather forthcoming, in a modern and poetic measure which I did not expect (remember our penchant for Victorian mildness and defiance?).
This 1902 edition is updated with new color plates, and with its original illustrations, although the book is old and tatty (a lovable version of ‘tattered’).
Most young people find botany a dull study. So it is, as taught from the text-books in the schools; but study it your yourself from the fields and woods, and you will find it a source of perennial delight.
How perfect. Perennial delight.
