Originally published in 1922, this book was created to provide an accessible guide to the plant varieties found in Cambridge University Botanic Garden. It was written by Humphrey Gilbert-Carter (1884–1969), the first academic Director of the Garden, who held the position from 1919 to 1951. Numerous species are listed, with information on their key characteristics and native habitats. A variety of illustrative figures, a glossary and a short bibliography are also included. This is a fascinating document that will be of value to anyone with an interest in plant science and the history of Cambridge University Botanic Garden.
