(Tallahassee, 1904) ; in Climate, Soil and Resources of Florida (United States Department of Agriculture, Washington, 1882): A Preliminary Report on the Soils of Florida (United States Department of Agriculture, Division of Soils, Bulletin 13, 1898) ; C. L. Norton's Handbook of Florida (2nd edition, New York, 1892); the volumes of the Twelfth Census of the United States (for 1900) which treat of Agriculture and Manufactures, and the Special Report on Mines and Quarries for 1902. J. N. Mac-Gonigle's " Geography of Florida " (National Geographic Magazine, vol. 7), T. D. A. Cockerell's " West Indian Fauna in Florida " (Nature, vol. 46), L. F. Pourtales's " Flora and Fauna of the Florida Keys " (American Naturalist, vol. II), and C. F. Millspaugh's Flora of the Sand Keys of Florida (Chicago, 1907), a Field Columbian Museum publication, are of value. To sportsmen, C. B. Cory's Hunting and Fishing in Florida (Boston, 1896) and A. W. and A. Dimock's Florida Enchantments (New York, 1908) are of interest. For administration, see Wilbur F. Yocum's Civil Government of Florida (De Land, Florida, 1904) ; and the Revised Statutes of Florida (1892). The standard history is that by G. R. Fairbanks, History of Florida (Philadelphia, 1871). This should be supplemented by D. G. Brinton's Notes on the Floridian Peninsula, its Literary History, Indian Tribes and Antiquities (Philadelphia, 1859), which has an excellent descriptive bibliography of the early explorations! Woodbury Lowery, The Spanish Settlements within the Present Limits of the United States (New York, vol. i., 1901; vol. ii., sub-title Florida, 1905) ; R. L. Campbell's Historical Sketches of Colonial Florida (Cleveland, 1892), which treats at length of the history of Pensacola; H. E. Chambers's West Florida and its Relation to the Historical Cartography of the Uniied States (Johns Hopkins Studies in Historical and Political Science, Series 16, No. 5) ; and Herbert B. Fuller's The Purchase of Florida; its History and Diplomacy (Cleveland, O., 1906). The only published collections of documents relating to the state are Buckingham Smith's Collection de varios documentos Para la historia de la Florida y tierras adyacentes (London, 1857), and Benjamin F. French's Historical Collections of Louisiana (New York, 1846-1875).
