Excerpt from The California Vegetables in Garden and Field: A Manual of Practice, With and Without Irrigation, for Semitropical Countries In view of the very appreciative reception which the public accorded to the first edition of this work and the urgent demand for its reappearance, it is deeply regretted by the writer that the present edition lias been so long delayed. It seemed, however, unavoidable. The revision necessary to include later results of experience and observation and extension to fitly include the advancement of certain vegetables in commercial volume and importance and the methods of handling them, largely developed by local study and experiment, have required much attention. In fact, the revision of the work has required a repetition of the same effort which was invoked in its initial preparation, and for which the following claim was made in the preface to the First Edition : "There arc very good reasons why the task of preparing such a book has been so long delayed. The subject is appalling in its intricacy. Conditions of soil and climate in California are varied to the last degree, and practice must vary with them. Xo matter how skilful and successful a man may be in his particular locality, bis experience can only be a safe guide to those who happen to work under similar conditions. For this reason, though there have been admirable local writers ou garden practice from the beginning, their writings, no matter how diligently collected and bow well printed, would not constitute a suggestive treatise unless the enquirer should analyze the local conditions and practice and translate them into terms of wide applicability. To do this it is necessary that the principles underlying the successful practice should be discerned and the significance of conditions be interpreted. This task could only be discharged by one who has had opportunity for wide collection of data, and for extended personal observation as well, and one fur whom labor would be continually lightened by enthusiastic delight in the subject itself.
