have been embodied in its pages, where it was thought no improvement could be made.

To the publishers the author is greatly indebted for many corrections in the botanical portion of the work, in making it conform to the present state of botanical science.

While this work has been made as simple as possible, and not encumbered with technical terms, it was thought to be important to give the true scientific name to every plant as well as the common one.

To all lovers of flowers we would recommend the study of Botany, especially to all who have time, and almost every one can find time if there is a will to do it.

A description of hardy and evergreen trees, as in the old book, has been omitted, as we consider the work as a Book of Flowers complete without it.

The number of pages exceeds nearly one hundred more than in the old book.

There may be many interesting ornamental plants known to some of our readers, that have been omitted.

It has been the object of the writer to confine himself to such plants as can be cultivated without much difficulty, in the open ground in this climate.

The author hopes, that his “New Book of Flowers” will meet with as much favor as the old one has done, and be instrumental in increasing the pleasure of those, who take delight in contemplating the exquisite beauty which, a God of Love, has been pleased to bestow upon flowers.

“ Who can paint

Can imagination boast,
Amid its gay creation, hues like these ?
Or can it mix them with that matchless skill,
And lose them in each other, as appears

In every bud that blows !"
“ In the sweet-scented picture heavenly artist!
With which, thou paintest nature's wide-spread hall,
What a delightful lesson thou impartest

Like nature ?

of love to all ?"

Boston, March 28, 1866.
