Review:

A timely addition to the serious gardener's reference shelf. Galanthus lovers must have this book. -- John E. Bryan "Gardening Newsletter" (12/16/1999) The book is a must-have for any grower of temperate bulbs. -- M. J. Harvey "Rock Garden Quarterly" (08/10/2000) This is a scholarly work and is highly interesting. -- Marty Figley "Michigan Observer and Eccentric" (04/27/2000) If you are, like me, besotted with snowdrops, this is just the book. -- Judy Glattstein "Home Monthly" (02/01/2000) If you have any interest in this group you should have this book -- Alan Leslie "Garden (Peterborough)" (04/17/2000) Zealous collectors of snowdrops are well served by "The Genus Galanthus." -- Fred Whitsey "Daily Telegraph (London)" (12/31/1999) It represents the most detailed study of the subject ever undertaken and contains just about everything you could wish to know about snowdrops. For zealous collectors of snowdrops, this long-awaited book is as welcome as the first buds pushing through the ground at the beginning of a new gardening year. It will obviously be an essential book for botanists interested in bulbs but also for gardeners who want to identify the snowdrops in their own garden and also how to grow them. As a model of detail, this treatment of a small but horticulturally interesting group of plants will interest graduate students, researchers, faculty, and professional horticulturists. Aaron Davis's monograph is the first complete review of snowdrops since the classic 1956 study by F.C. Stearn . . . This is both a handsome and useful book. -- John Akeroyd "Hortus" (06/18/2001) Aaron P. Davis' excellent monograph, "The Genus Galanthus," is - one can never say the last word on such a subject, but it is the first time since 1956, and the last, most sane people will expect to need. It maintains the uniquely high standards expected of this series, both in text and production, and, as always, the specially commissioned botanical illustrations, in this case by Christabel King, elevate it to a higher plane. -- John Grimshaw "Bulbs" (05/10/1999) Davis's writing style is easily understandable even by amateur gardeners even though the manuscript was actually a thesis for the Ph.D.If you have a strong interest in learning in-depth about snowdrops, be sure to add this book to your bookshelf. -- Diana Pederson "Suite101.com" (06/15/2001)
