Nepenthes or pitcher plants were a popular discovery by Europeans in the Malay Archipelago in the 19th century. The fascination arose not only from the plants' carnivorous habits, but also because of the attractive pitcher like productions of the plant. This led to extensive cultivation of the plant for decoration. This book, originally published in the 1920s, was one of the earlier works broadcasting this new discovery. With an introduction by Charles Clarke, a world authority on the plant. New Hardback in a New Dust Jacket. 208 pages with illustrations, a bibliography and an index.
