To botanists and serious gardeners throughout the world, L.H. Bailey's standard Manual of Cultivated Plants has been an indispensable and definitive horticultural classic since its original publication in 1923. This revised edition, greatly expanded and completely restudied to bring it up to date, provides fresh material and current nomenclature. Its purpose, like that of the original edition, is to provide a ready means for the identification of species of plants usually domestic in the continental United States and Canada. Diagnoses, with full keys, of the species grown for food, ornament, utility, and general interest, both in the open and under glass, compose the main body of the work. Fruit, grains, grasses, vegetables, greenhouse plants, ornamental shrubs and plants, and garden flowers are included. in addition there are explanations of more than 1000 botanical terms, a list of authorities responsible for the Latin binomials, a key to the 194 natural families contained in the book, and 195 meticulously rendered drawings showing plant structures in detail

Liberty Hyde Bailey : essential agrarian and environmental writings by L. H Bailey( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique volume contains selected works of Liberty Hyde Bailey (1858-1954), a scholar-essayist-naturalist who espoused a "biocentric worldview." The work presents what the editor calls a "comprehensive introduction to Bailey's thinking on agriculture, nature, community, and education," drawn from ten of Bailey's most popular published works. The 42 excerpts or full essays are organized under nine descriptors that lay out Bailey's inimitable observations and agri-environmental (nature-minded) philosophical perspective, one that stands in contrast to the contemporary anthropocentric view
