This is one of the most important journals of the twentieth century, mirroring the rise of interest in succulent plants in Britain. It was interrupted by a 7 year break for WW2, resurrected in 1946 by Ernest Shurly (1888-1963). It was also close to folding in 1975 when David Hunt stepped in and revived its fortunes. The two rival British cactus and succulent societies amalgamated in 1983, and this and the National Cactus and Succulent Journal were replaced from 1983 by the British Cactus and Succulent Journal.
Reproduced here with the approval of the British Cactus and Succulent Society from a set in the library of Roy Mottram.
