History of Orchids
"The history of orchid cultivation is replete with details of wonder and interest. The facts concerning the introduction of orchids to European glasshouses and gardens, the difficulties necessarily overcome before their cultivation was properly understood, and the long list of illustrious names who have each played an important part in orchidology, all combine to make the history of the Orchid Family an absorbing and unique study."
