An interesting, well-researched story of Baron von Ludwig and his life in Cape Town. Professor H.

His efforts to show the importance of the Baron's horticultural introductions have been most successful and will accord Von Ludwig his correct place in Cape Botanical and horticultural history.' 16 illustrations, portraits and photographs.
