More correctly a greatly extended second edition of his 1892 volume, with the same title but a new subtitle. At five times the size, however, I have treated it as a new work which happens to incorporate the previous one. It is illustrated with line drawings and a rather twee painted frontis. Seventy nine sweet peas are described, plus three other Lathyrus species.
