- Stafleu & Cowan 18.240. First edition of a work on fresh-water algae in North America by the American physician and botanist Horatio C. Wood jr. (1841-1920).

Wood sets out three different classes of fresh-water algae, with their different orders and families, and describes the individual algae's cells, size, colours, and where they can be found, sometimes mentioning very exact spots in North America. With stamp. Slightly browned, otherwise in very good condition.
