AN

HISTORICAL AND BOTANICAL ACCOUNT

OP

FRUITS

KNOWN IN GREAT BRITAIN

BY

HENRY PHILLIPS

SECOND EDITION

Δίνδρεα δ' όψιπίτηλα κατακρήθεν χέε καρπόν,
'Ογχναι και ρδιαι, και μηλέαι αγλαόκαρποι,
Συκαι τε γλυκεράι, και έλαίαι τηλεθόωσαι.

HOM ODYSS

" 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 80
delightful. The names of these pubļic benefactors are chiefly unkahwn, whilst their teletts
pass from generation to generation : whereas, those of the destroyers or the human race are
banded down to us in, every page, as if we took more account of our enemies than our
friends."
