PREFACE.

The universal reception of the standards of flowers and plants laid down by Mr. Glenny, and the unprincipled manner in which men, and bodies of men, have appropriated them, without acknowledging their source, has induced the proprietors of the series of papers in which these standards were first published, to collect, and republish them in a cheap form, in the hope and belief, that an authorized edition of the entire series will check further piracies, and secure to the author the reputation which he has earned in the Floricultural world as an original contributor to the Garden Literature, and the promoter of a taste for flowers and plants unknown before his time.
