Manual of cultivated plants most commonly grown in the continental United States and Canada by L. H Bailey( Book )

86 editions published between 1924 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To botanists and serious gardeners throughout the world, L.H. Bailey's standard Manual of Cultivated Plants has been an indispensable and definitive horticultural classic since its original publication in 1923. This revised edition, greatly expanded and completely restudied to bring it up to date, provides fresh material and current nomenclature. Its purpose, like that of the original edition, is to provide a ready means for the identification of species of plants usually domestic in the continental United States and Canada. Diagnoses, with full keys, of the species grown for food, ornament, utility, and general interest, both in the open and under glass, compose the main body of the work. Fruit, grains, grasses, vegetables, greenhouse plants, ornamental shrubs and plants, and garden flowers are included. in addition there are explanations of more than 1000 botanical terms, a list of authorities responsible for the Latin binomials, a key to the 194 natural families contained in the book, and 195 meticulously rendered drawings showing plant structures in detail

"At the turn of the last century, when farming first began to face the most rapid and extensive series of changes that industrialization would bring, the most compelling and humane voice representing the agrarian tradition came from the botanist, farmer, philosopher, and public intellectual Liberty Hyde Bailey. In 1915, Bailey's environmental manifesto, The Holy Earth, addressed the industrialization of society by utilizing the full range of human vocabulary to assert that the earth's processes and products, because they form the governing conditions of human life, should therefore be understood not first as economic, but as divine."--Publisher

Liberty Hyde Bailey : essential agrarian and environmental writings by L. H Bailey( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bailey style is characterized as following the tradition of Emerson, Burroughs, and Muir. From it, one acquires a clear sense of Bailey's emotive and observational sensibilities. In the group of excerpts presented under the editor's designation as "Appreciations," which include "Apple Tree," "Wind," "Weed," "Evening," and "Morning," Bailey reveals his revolutionary but uncomplicated thinking. Few contemporary writers remind the reader in such reflective rhetoric of the simple--yet provocative--ecological meaning of the commonplace phenomena that surround us. These characteristics and Bailey's expository prose provide this work with its most poignant and essential contribution. The book jacket presents two photos of Bailey, whose wisdom will be valuable for a wide readership. Copyright 2009 American Library Association
