Excerpt from The Wild-Flowers of Selborne and Other Papers

In deference to the wishes of many friends the writer has collected the following articles, the outcome of a few hours of leisure in a busy life. In doing so, he desires to express his obligations to the editors of the various magazines in which the papers originally appeared for their kind permission to reprint them. To the courteous editor of Long-mans his thanks are especially due, for the majority of the articles were published in the pages of that excellent magazine, the recent withdrawal of which he, with many others, regrets. He also wishes to offer his acknowledgments to the editors of the Cornhill, Temple Bar, Chambers's Journal, The Monthly Packet and The Churchman for like favours. The papers are reprinted almost entirely in their original form: it seemed best not to attempt to recast them, even if here and there a slight repetition be discernible.

Among the illustrations special interest attaches to the frontispiece, which represents the design of a school which it was proposed to erect at Selborne as a memorial to Gilbert White.
