Messrs. Riviere's beautifully illustrated book, Les Bambous, and the late General Munro's monograph, published in The Transactions of the Linnean Society, 15th November 1866, are respectively the French and English classics upon the subject. I have not hesitated to draw largely upon such rich storehouses of knowledge; but since the publication of those works many new species have been discovered, and they are therefore not up to date, otherwise there would be no reason for any further book treating of Bamboos.
One attraction, at any rate, I may claim for my book in the admirable drawings so kindly furnished by Mr. Alfred Parsons, whose life-long devotion to the portraiture of plant life found a new scope in the ?ora and landscape of Japan, of which his transcripts by pen and pencil have charmed the reading and the artist world of England and America.
