Excerpt from A Popular California Flora: Or, Manual of Botany for Beginners; Containing Descriptions of Flowering Plants Growing in Central California, and Westward to the Ocean, With Illustrated Introductory Lessons

I have endeavored to prepare an inexpensive manual which will enable beginners in botany to determine the names of all plants with conspicuous flowers, that may be found growing wild in the Central Valley of California from Visalia to Marysville and through the Coast Ranges from Monterey to Ukiah. Over six hundred species of plants are characterized by descriptions condensed, for the most part, from Vol. I of the "California Botany," and Sereno Watson's "Revision of the North American Liliaccse." Valuable material has also been obtained from a "Revision of the Eriogoncoe," by Torrey and Gray, Gray's "Synoptical Flora of North America," and "Gray's Manual of Botany."

Plants belonging to the Parsnip, Aster, "Willow, Oak and Pine Families, arc not described, being mostly too difficult for beginners, or of little interest to them.

The Introductory Lessons are designed to show the learner how to study the growth of plants, as well as to give such knowledge of their structure as will enable him to understand the descriptions in the Flora.

The "Glossary of Generic and Specific Names" will enable the student to make appropriate common names for most plants.

To the authors, whose works have furnished the materials for this book, is due the credit for whatever of excellence it may possess; to the compiler, who may, in a few cases, have misrepresented these authors, attaches the blame for most of its defects.

I am indebted for suggestions and criticisms to Prof. E. Hilgard, "Or. C. L. Anderson, Prof. W. II. Brewer and Dr. Asa Gray. To the latter I am especially grateful for his kind interest in my humble work.
