1 McClure,F. A. The Bamboos, A Fresh Perspective.
Cambridge, Massachusetts: Harvard University Press, 1966. 
Octavo, cloth & boards (hardcover), xv, 434 pp. Very Good+, with neat former-owner stamp & former-owner's published review pasted to rear endpaper, in a Very Good dust jacket with light edgewear. From jacket: This book is a distillation of a lifetime of experience in the study of bamboos. The author has seen living plants of more different kinds of bamboo than any other man, and he has acquired a knowledge of them that is unique in its comprehensiveness. There is no comparable work on bamboos in any Western language. The first part of the book described the plant's component parts, its vegetative and reproductive states, and its role as a member of different genera and species...The book continues with a systematic treatment of seven important species, each from a differnt genus, and a thorough discussion of propagation methods...The author describes the flowering and fruiting behaviouf of some thirty different speicies, as a basis for classification, and concludes with a discussion of bamboos from the point of view of taxonomy. Appendices contain a key to genera of bamboos under cultivation in the United States and Puerto Rico, a list of bamboos offered by nurserymen in this country, a glossary, and an index of the scientific names referred to in the text.
