I read in the original IPS mag "PRINCIPES" ( which I still have), from when I originally joined our club in '78. Interesting back history in those readings and glad to have been apart of it all these years. I believe the wonderful Paulene Sullivan ran the bookstore in those days and I was able to snag the "bible" of~ Palms of the World which even then was out of print. Even in black & white, it was a huge learning tool for me on the subject. Love to learn morphology from origin of latin names to what they meant and where these plants come from. Incidentally many of the pics in that book were courtesy of Dent! The many references to him and his work is awe inspiring. 

Tip my hat to Mr. Smith
