Elements of Structural and Systematic Botany
by Douglas Houghton Campbell
Publisher: Ginn 1891
Number of pages: 284
An introduction to the study of botany for use in high schools especially, but sufficiently comprehensive to serve also as a beginning book in most colleges. It does not pretend to be a complete treatise of the whole science. This structural work has been supplemented by so much classification as will serve to make clear the relationships of different groups, and the principles upon which the classification is based, as well as enable the student to recognize the commoner types of the different groups as they are met with.

Few of us realize that without plants all our modern civilization would be swept away. This book is for those who want some general knowledge of the plant world, without necessarily caring for the technical details upon which such knowledge is based.

My researches is confined to the species large enough to appease the appetite of a hungry naturalist if found in reasonable quantity; and my work is devoted to segregating the edible and innocuous from the tough, undesirable and poisonous kinds.

This book for popular use, rather than for students of botanical science; all technical terms are, therefore, as far as possible, avoided. The identification of species is a safe guide, and is the only means of knowing what mushrooms should be eaten.
