The Nurseryman's Pocket Specimen Book is a botanical reference book that was published in 1872 by D.M. Dewey and S.F. Mason. The book was designed to assist nurserymen in identifying and classifying plants, with a focus on trees and shrubs that were commonly grown in North America.

The book is compact in size, designed to be carried in a pocket, and contains over 200 beautifully illustrated color plates of trees, shrubs, and other plants, as well as detailed descriptions of each species. The illustrations were drawn from specimens collected from various parts of the United States, and each plate includes detailed information on the plant's botanical characteristics, as well as its common and scientific names.

The Nurseryman's Pocket Specimen Book was well received by nurserymen and horticulturists of the time, and it was widely used in the United States and Canada. Its compact size and comprehensive information made it a popular reference tool for those involved in the plant trade, and it remains a valuable historical document for those interested in the history of horticulture and botany in North America.Image Specifications
