Synopsis Filicum; including Osmundaceae, Schizaeacese, Marattiaceae, and Ophioglossacese, accompanied by Figures representing the essential characteristics of each Genus. By the late Sir W. J. Hooker, K.H., and John Gilbert Baker, E.L.S., Assistant Curator of the Kew Gardens. Price £1. 2s. 6d. plain; £1. 8s. coloured by hand.

This is the cheapest and most complete book which describes all the Ferns throughout the world. So full and clear are its details that anybody who will take the trouble to master a few botanical terms can with certainty name any fern he may meet with in any part of the world, whether growing wild or under cultivation in garden or hothouse.

"Sir W. Hooker began collecting a Fern Herbarium in 1811. For this study

*Ms enthusiastic and illustrious botanist had all his life extraordinary advantages.

, —-'tions he occupied—first as Professor of Botany at Glasgow, and then as

"the Kew Gardens—were made the most of, not merely by amiability

nch made his pupils and friends willing assistants, but at Kew he

possessed the finest herbarium of ferns, and, thanks to Mr John Smith, the best collection of ferns in cultivation in the world. The names of travellers and botanists to whom he acknowledges obligations fill a page and a half of his preface. When Sir W. Hooker died, his son, Dr. Hooker, requested Mr. J. G. Baker to carry it out, possessing as he did full access to the specimens, and being supplied with Sir William's notes and annotations. The result is the publication of such a work as the author designed—a rude mecum for the students, cultivators, and collectors of ferns."—AthencBUm,
