'The genus Haworthia, of the family Liliaceae, has captured the imagination of botanists, horticulturists and collectors worldwide, and has become the favoured subject of many succulent plant collections. All the fascination of these delightful aloe-like succulents is in their varied growth forms. They are generally easy to propagate from leaves and many are very proliferous, forming clumps of offsets which, in turn, can from their own clumps. Emdemic to the southernmost parts of the African continent, the great majority of the species are found in the Cape Province of the Republic of South Africa, with only a few species occurring outside of that Province. Haworthia has always been a problem genus and Charles Scott has devoted a lifetime to the unravelling of its taxonomic problems, which have daunted botanists over many years. This monograph will become the definitive work on this delightful subject.' - Editor's note
