The Principles of Botany: As Exemplified in the Phanerogamia (Classic Reprint)
This volume renders complete the previously published work of the author entitled, 'Principles of Botany as exemplified in the Crytogamia.' In that work it was shown that the same laws of nutrition and reproduction operate in the vital economy of plants composed of a few cells as when vegetation is constructed on a scale of gigantic magnitude and granduer. In this new volume on the Phanerogamia or flowering plants, the author enters on the investigation of the anatomy and functions of a more highly organized and complex vegetation. He has examined with care, the writings of Scheiden, Lindley, Balfour, Gray, Richard, and other eminent botanists, but above all the Volume of Creation, of which every other work is but an imperfect copy. The book is illustrated with numerous engravings, and such scientific terms as it was necessary to introduce into the next have been carefully explained and their etymology given as soon as introduced.
The author takes this opportunity of gratefully acknowledging the kindness and liberality of the physicians of Philadelphia, who have been and still are his principal patrons.
