First Notice.--" He is a writer whose authorship has this weighty re-
commendation, that he can support his theories by facts, and can point
to lands worth less than a shilling an acre when he found them, now
covered with ornamental plantations, and yielding through them a
revenue equal to that of the finest corn-land in the country,
His book has interest both for the adept and the novice, for the large
proprietor and him that has but a nook or corner to plant out." Second
Notice.-" There are many facts to be gleaned out of it both by amateurs
and professionals.

Duly studied, too, it is calculated to prevent
failures, whether great or small, within the range of the subject on
which it treats, and the book carries on its face the evidence of thorough
and long experience, as also of no small facility in the art of attracting
the interest of every class of readers. We know no book on the subject
of planting so exhaustive in proportion to its size."--Saturday Review.
