Table of Contents:
1 The Juniperus communis of Linnæus.
2 The Juniperus Lycia, and the Juniperus Phœnicia, probably, of Lin- næus. It has been supposed by some, that it is these trees that produce the frankincense of Africa; but, as Fée observes, the subject is enveloped in considerable obscurity.
3 The "sharp-leaved" cedar. The Juniperus oxycedrus of Linnæus.
4 The "Pinus cedrus" of Linnæus. The name "cedrus" was given by the ancients not only to the cedar of Lebanon, but to many others of the Coniferæ as well, and more particularly to several varieties of the juniper.
5 See B. xxxvi. c. 4.
