Abstract

In a volume replete with illustrations, the author traces the early history of the banana, the development of the industry, in fact, every possible relationship of importance to the growth, marketing and use of this fruit. A special chapter on the food value will be of interest to physicians, since it collects material from many places in convenient summaries. The author provides many facts, and at the same time keeps in view the romance that is inevitably associated with the growth of any great industry.
