Excerpt from English Botany, or Coloured Figures of British Plants, Vol. 1The appearance of the first number of a Third Edition of "English Botany" calls for a few remarks upon the mode in which it is proposed to conduct the re-issue of this great work.Each Part will contain twenty-four plates, and on an average twenty-four pages of letterpress. The plates will be all carefully examined by the Editor, and errors in outline or colour corrected. At the time when the work was first published, characters taken from the fruit were not so much employed in distinguishing species as at present, and in general no figures of fruit were given: this will now be remedied. Magnified representations of the organs will also be added where necessary.Plates of the whole of the flowering plants figured in the original edition (with a few exceptions noticed below), and those in the four volumes of the "Supplement to English Botany," will now be given, and also those which Mr. Salter has in preparation for the fifth volume of the "Supplement."In several instances entirely new plates will be required, some of the original ones being too incorrect; and some species have not yet been figured for this work. When these new plates arc not ready at the time when the Part to which they belong should appear, twenty-four plates will still be issued, but their numbers will not be consecutive, and those which are wanting will be given subsequently, as soon as examples of the plants can be obtained from which drawings may be made.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
