From the Publisher:

This set was prepared from the author's original field notes covering more than 100,000 experiments made during forty years devoted to plant improvement.

From the Author:

"Just as a stranger, going into a home for the first time, will see, vividly, either beauties or incongruities which constant association has dimmed in the eyes of the steady occupants, just so, a fresh mind may be better able to visualize the more common processes, all too familiar to me, which I employ in my daily work."

"There are in fact many details in my routine, which are no less important because they are common to me and which may need some little explanation when described to others in different walks of life."

"I have, therefore, asked my associates, whose new viewpoint should enable them to observe these details in clear perspective, to present in this – the first volume, a survey of the working methods employed; so that the reader may in the first few chapters be brought to the point where he and I may go out into the fields together, and work among our plants with perfect understanding."

Luther Burbank
Santa Rosa, California January 7, 1914
