Small slim 8vo, pp xviii, 79, a very good clean copy in a very slightly frayed dustwrapper. [Professor Jack Hawkes' copy, with his signature on the front endpaper and a tiny ink annotation to the pronunciation page.]. {First published in 1950, this alphabetical glossary gives the meaning, pronunciation, and derivation of the generic, trivial, and varietal names of plants mentioned in British Floras. It should become a small but essential reference book to all users of Floras, including beginners in botany, whether students or amateurs. Intelligent, familiar, and confident use of the scientific names of plants is desirable in any serious work. This book will put it in the power of every reader, whether trained in Latin and Greek or not, to speak and write and understand the international names of British plants.}
