To aid the student in the verification of the work, and to introduce liini to the literature of the various subjects, citations are made to the por- traits of plants in the leading periodicals to which the American is most likely to have access. These references to pictures have been verified as far as possible, both in the MS. and in tlie proof. A uniform method of citation is much to be de- sired, but is extremely difficult, because periodi- cals rarely agree in methods. With great reluc- tance it was decided to omit the year in most cases, because of the pressure for space, but the student who lacks access to the original volumes may generally ascertain the year by consulting the bibliographical notes below.

An arliitrary ami brief method of citation has been chosen. At the outset it seemed best to indi- cate wliethei' the cited ])icture is colored or not. This accounts for the two ways of citing certain publications containing both kinds of pictures, as The Garden, Revue Horticole, and Gartenfloi'a.

The figures given below explain the method of citation, and incideutally give sonni hints as to the imrnber of volumes to date, and of the uundter of pages or plates in one of the latest volumes.

A few works of the greatest importance are mentioned elsewhere by way <if arknowledgraent (p. XV). The standard works on tlie bibliography of botany are Pritzel's Thesaurus and Jackson's <Tiiide to tlie Literature of Botany; also, .Taekson's Catalogue of tlie Library of the Ivoyal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
