This book contains a classic guide to setting up, maintaining, and studying specimens in a herbarium, originally written for naturalists and amateur enthusiasts. A herbarium is a collection of preserved plant specimens and associated data used for scientific study. The term can also refer to the building or room where the specimens are housed, or to the scientific institute that not only stores but uses them for research. This volume is highly recommended for those with a practical interest in creating and maintaining their own herbarium, as well as those interested in the subject of botany in general. Contents include: "The Herbarium", "How to Collect, and Where to Find the Plants", "On Pressing, Drying, and Mounting Plants", "How to Name the Plants and Arrange the Herbarium", "Arrangement of Plants According to the Natural System of Botany", "The Cryptogamous, of Flowering Plants", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on botany.
