by Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker, a fourth volume containing plates 412-600 being pub-


Sereral copies of the last volame having passed into the hands of Mr. Quaritch,

he would urge upon the possessors of the first three volumes the necessity of
immediately obtaining the fourth, as the remaining two or three copies of that volume
will soon be exhausted. No more can ever be produced, as the copperplates were sold

as old metal.
