Solid hardcover. ; "The scent of plants has been investigated in detail by perfumers and the chemists in their service, and it has occasionally attracted the attention of botanists, but the result of their researches is not very easily accessible to the gardener and the general public. It has therefore seemed worth while - on the assumption, which may be unduly optimistic, that the subject is of general interest - to gather together some of the facts and theories that are related to the scent of plants and to try to present them in a simple and coherent way." - Preface. ; vii, 135 pages.
