AN

HISTORICAL AND BOTANICAL ACCOUNT

OF

FRUITS

KNOWN IN GREAT BRITAIN:

BY

HENRY PHILLIPS, F.H.S.

AUTHOR OF

"THE COMPANION FOR THE KITCHEN GARDEN," &c. &c.

"I have often been astonished at our indifference respecting the applause of those who
have introduced useful plants into their country, the fruits of which are to this day so de-
lightful. The names of these public benefactors are chiefly unknown, whilst their benefits
pass from generation to generation; whereas, those of the destroyers of the human race are
handed down to us in every page, as if we took more account of our enemies than of our
friends."
ST. PIERRE.
