Jane Loudon, the Mrs Beeton of the
Victorian gardening world, wrote several popular books on horticulture and
botany specifically for women. In the 18th century, botany books were mostly
written for a female audience. Women were encouraged to study botany as it was
considered to be an acceptable activity for women.

This volume takes the place of the author's Lessons in Botany and Vegetable
Physiology, published over a quarter of a century ago. It is constructed on the
same lines, and is a kind of new and much revised edition of that successful
This structural work
has been supplemented by so much classification as will serve to make clear the
relationships of different groups, and the principles upon which the
classification is based, as well as enable the student to recognize the commoner
types of the different groups as they are met with. The aim of this book is not,
however, merely the identification of plants.

Nathaniel Lord Britton was the first director-in-chief of The New
York Botanical Garden and a giant of a taxonomist. From 1896 to 1898 he
published the three-volume landmark floristic study An Illustrated Flora of the
Northern United States and Canada (Brown financed it), and revised it again in
1913. This book contains 149 individual plant files, each with illustration, taxonomy, distribution
and current botanical name.
