blind-stamped outer border front cover; Succulent plants, including Cacti, are very popular nowadays. Some people grow them for their curious shapes and attractive colouring but are not particularly interested in the names whilst others grow them for their scientific interest and can make use of the botanical literature to solve their problems. The majority of amateurs, however, are interested not only in growing the plants as well as possible but also in knowing the relationships between the different kinds and they want to be able to name the plants they have in their collections. People who are not accustomed to forming a mental picture from a written description will find it much easier to identify a plant from an illustration and, for this purpose, it is much more helpful to the owner of a young plant to see a picture of a plant of similar size rather than of an adult specimen growing in the desert, interesting and beautiful though the habitat photographs may be. The plates have been arranged in their appropriate groups with a short foreword to introduce each group. The lovely colour plates are very welcome and this volume is going to be most helpful to the many growers of cacti and other succulent plants.
