Catalogue Note

"This was an extension of the work on climbing plants to show that the same mechanisms hold good for flowering plants in general. It was another specialist book and seems to have sold fewer copies than any other, and was not reprinted in England after the year of Darwin's death until modern facsimiles appeared of the first thousand in 1966 and the second in 1969" (Freeman, p.161).
