Smith, A.W. 1963. A gardener's book of plant names: a handbook
of the meaning and origins of plant names. NY: Harper & Row.
Despite the word "gardener" in the title, it is devoted to
explaining the etymology of the scientific names of many, many
plants. The copy is a collector's item, a first-edition copy in
pristine condition with intact dustjacket. $20 plus postage.
