Introduction
Palestine is a land of ruins, but the flowers of its fields are as beautiful as when they were looked upon by the Master Himself; and it was a happy thought of Mr. H. B. Greene to arrange in this attractive form these precious souvenirs of the home land of Christ. This gentleman has made, at different times, three journeys to the Holy Land, covering not less than thirty-five thousand miles of travel, solely for the purpose of studying its floral wealth and of gathering specimens by which the variety and beauty of that wealth could be illustrated.
