This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1900 edition. Excerpt: ...Baxter, Esq., of Morecambe, by Mr. Roberts, and include good forms of O. Pescatorei, crispum, and a dark luteopurpureum, with a few interesting hybrids, which exhibit the usual amount of polymorphism, so much, indeed, that one or two can scarcely be identified with certainty. A form of O. X Coradinei has a rather broad, short lip, showed a well marked crispum influence, and a very regularly blotched form of O. X Andersonianum has very little of the acuminate shape so common in that hybrid. The others areaform of O. X Denisonae, avery yellow form of O. X Adrianae, and what may be a very small O. luteopurpureum or a form ofO. X mulus showing but little of the gloriosum character in the lip. Flowers of the charming Dendrobium Devonianum are are enclosed. Two splendid Laelio-cattleyas are sent from the collection of Sir Frederick V)/igan, Clare Lawn, East Sheen, _ by Mr. Young. L.-c. X callistoglossa is a massive flower of over nine inches in diameter across the petals, and the lip very richly coloured, and L.-c. X Henry Greenwood is a richly-coloured form derived from L.-c. X Schilleriana and Cattleya X Hardyana, which is further interesting because both parents are themselves of hybrid origin. It most resembles the pollen parent in general character.
