Taylor and Francis
"The occurence from year to year of cases of accidental poisoning, by substitution of a deleterious for a wholesome vegetable, has led to the idea, that a small work, illustrative of the poisonous plants indigenous to this country, might be useful in rendering the subject one of more general interest than it has previously been; and, by directing attention to the dangerous results of such mistakes, originating in the correspondence of form which some of them present to well-known articles of food or condiment, render such casualties less frequent in future."
