Summary This book in size and page number (94 pp) is a small reference. Titled Pronunciation of Plant Names and published by the Garden Club of America, it is dedicated to Mrs. Francis King, first president of the Garden Club of Michigan. It is a straight-forward, alphabetized list of botanical nomenclature, after which each entry there is a phonetic presentation of proper pronunciation. There is an inked hand-written name at the top of a page inside the front cover: Bessie P. McKee/September 1923/Four Winds Farm. A list of Garden Club officers and directors appears at the beginning of the book. This particular book appears to be the sort of reference one would carry about the garden.
