ALL ABOUT WEEDS EDWIN ROLLIN SPENCER
ALL ABOUT WEEDS. Edwin Rollin Spencer, Dover Publications, 1968.
This book might be called a Who's Who among Weeds as it covers 102 of the most common weeds found throughout the United States. Weeds of lawn & yard, weeds that are sometimes used for food, weeds that are the bane of hayfever sufferers, weeds that can ruin cow's milk, poisonous weeds, and even the real desperadoes that can totally overtake a field in one season are all covered. The author, Edwin R. Spencer, was a farmer and biology professor; his text is both a practical and an authoritative guide to weeds, able to speak to nature lovers, farmers, and scientists alike.
Nice overall with just light cover wear. 102 illustrations. 333 pages.
