Or, an Attempt to Explain the Principal Operations of Gardening upon Physiological Prin-

This book is written in the hope of providing the intelligent gardener, and the scientific
amateur, correctly, with the rationalia of the more important operations of Horticulture;
and the author has endeavoured to present to his readers an intelligible explanation, founded
upon well ascertained facts, which they can judge of by their own means of observation, of
the general nature of vegetable actions, and of the causes which, while they control the
powers of life in plants, are capable of being regulated by themselves. The possession of
such knowlege will necessarily teach them how to improve their methods of cultivation, and
lead them to the discovery of new and better inodes.

Besides these claims on attention offered by its separate divisions, the entire series will be found very advantageous for families resident in the country, who are not possessed of a library; for emigrants, and as a cabin library for vessels bearing passengers to distant parts; and for the libraries of Mechanics' Institutions, Literary and Philosophical Societies, the Army and the Navy, and of Colonial Institutions.
