  • "I beg again to repeat that I am completely ignorant of the scientific part of Natural History. Filling, as I do, an arduous and responsible situation, I have only the means of making very cursory observations in my favourite amusement. These observations have indeed been made during my various rides in His Majesty's Parks in the fulfilment of official duties, and my chief relaxation has been in the tranquil and agreeable occupation of writing down in the evening whatever interested me in the course of the day...."--Author's preface, dated January 1834 in Hampton Court
  • Second in a series of three volumes of "gleanings;" volume 1 has subtitle: "with local recollections, to which are added maxims and hints for an angler;" and volume 3 has subtitle: "third and last series, to which are added notices of some of the royal parks and residences."
  • Text illustrated with three drawings of trees (pages 111, 113, 115)
