Boswell"Syme, F.L.S., assisted by Mrs. Lankester, “Sowerby's English Botany,' when finished, will be exhaustive of the subject, and worthy of the branch of science it illnstrates, In turning over the charmingly executed handcoloured plates of British plants which encumber these volumes with riches, the reader cannot help being struck with the beauty of many of the humblest flowering weeds we tread on with careless step. We cannot dwell upon 'many of the individuals grouped in the splendid bouquet of flowers presented in these pages, and it will be sufficient to stato that the work is pledged to contain a figure of every wild flower indigenous to these islos." Times.

“Will be the most complete Flora of Great Britain ever brought out. This great work will ind a place wherever botanical science is cultivated, and the study of our native plants, with all their fascinating associations, held dear."-Athenaeum.

“A clear, bold, distinctive type enables the reader to take in at a glance the arrangement and divisions of every page. And Mrs. Lankester has added to the technical description by the editor an extremely interesting popular sketch, which follows in smaller type. The English, French, and German popular names are given, and, wherever that delicate and dificult step is at all practicable, their derivation also. Medical properties, superstitions, and fancies, and poetic tribntes and Illusions, follow. In short there is nothing morc loft to be desired." Griardian.

“Withoat question, this is the standard work on Botany, and indispensabia to every botanist. The plates are most accurate and beautiful, and the entire work cannot be too strongly recommended to all who are interested in botany."-Illustrated News.
