Two interesting little volumes which will, we hope, make a

fit return for the industry and trouble which have been expended in producing them are Wild Flowers from Palestine (4s. 6d.) and Pressed Flowers from the Holy Land (2s. 6d.), by the Rev. Harvey B. Greene (E. Arnold). The first, besides giving an account of the "Flora of Palestine," aontains specimens—the actual flower, it should be understood—of the lily of the field, papyrus, Indian clover, Madonna flower, flax, Cannel daisy, anise, cyclamen, grass of Palestine, rose of Sharon, passion everlasting, hyssop (? mignonette), puff ball, lentil, mustard, bean, pheasant's eye, those italicised being found in the smaller volume.
