To bind your own copy of this book, please follow the directions starting with printing your book.

IMPORTANT: You must print “short-edge binding” on both sides of the page for the pages to be oriented correctly.

This book was created from scanned PDFs, rather than new formatting from plain text, so the quality is not as crisp as with my re-formatted books.

I have formatted it to print and bind to make your own hardcover copy of this book. Your book will consist of 18 signatures, or booklets, each of which will use 4 sheets of paper. To print this book you will print 72 sheets of paper, double sided. Your final book will have 288 pages.

This version contains black and white illustrations and photos. It also includes a single colour picture, of the original cover, on the second page.

To make the pages come out evenly, I removed 2 pages of advertising for other books that were included in the original book. I did leave 2 additional pages of advertisements for other books.

This is a book about the science of plants. It includes five sections: the growth and parts of plants; the work of plants; the behaviour of plants; life stories of plants; and battles of plants in the world.

First Studies of Plant Life is used as a science selection starting in year 7 of AmblesideOnline, the free Charlotte Mason homeschool curriculum.

You can find the original text of First Studies of Plant Life by George Francis Atkinson at Internet Archive.

Please let me know if you find any errors so I can correct them for others.

Please consider looking at other books I have formatted for binding.

I hope you enjoy your book! Happy reading!
