What Our Customers Say...

Description

Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

An attractive 1881 edition of Frank J. Scott's informative work on American landscaping, which was first published in 1870.

Beautifully illustrated with over two-hundred vignette and full page illustrations, largely of trees, shrubs and gardens.

With an informative description of 'the beautiful and hardy trees and shrubs grown in the United States'.

Chapters discuss decorative planting, lawns, the renovations of old places, flowers and bedding plants, deciduous trees, and vines and creepers.

A charming guide to late nineteenth century garden design.

Condition

In the publisher's original cloth binding. Bumping to back strip tail. Boards bright. Light fading to perimeters of boards. Hinges strained, but firmly held. Internally, firmly bound. Pages lightly age toned due to paper type, but clean.

Very Good
