Excerpt from Select Ferns and Lycopods: British and Exotic, Comprising Descriptions of Nine Hundred Choice Species and Varieties, Accompanied by Directions for Their Management in the Tropical, Temperate, and Hardy Fernery

Since the publication of my "Hints on the Cultivation of Ferns," the taste for these plants has been rapidly acquired, not only by those of high estate, who possess ample means and space for maintaining an extensive collection, but also by those having no other accommodation than a Fern Case, or a small space in the open air. Most important additions have also been made to the number of kinds in cultivation, both by importations from foreign countries, and by the discovery of extraordinary and beautiful variations amongst our native species. These circumstances, together with the vast increase of cultivators of this family, has rendered my former work obsolete as a book of reference, and the present volume is the result of an attempt to supply its place.

The earliest mention of Ferns with which I am acquainted is that by the immortal Shakespeare, our nation's pride, but we have no means of ascertaining if our indigenous species were known to him in detail, though it is evident he was quite aware of the minuteness of the spores, and of the manner in which they were distributed, for in Henry IV., Gadshill exclaims, when being advised to take heed lest he should be caught, "We have the receipt of Fern seed, we walk invisible."
