Mr. Burbank with a Gigantic Crinum Bulb
This also is a very recent portrait of Mr. Burbank, taken at Sebastopol. He is standing beside the trunk of the weeping birch, with which we have already made acquaintance in other pictures. The remarkable bulb is a cross between the crinum and the amaryllis, fully described in an earlier volume.
