What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Folding Maps, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

The second impression, published in the same year as the first impression.

With H. Rider Haggard's hieroglyphic bookplate to the front pastedown.

One of H. Rider Haggard's lesser known works, this is a diary of gardening throughout the year. It offers a thorough explanation of the author's work in his garden across one year, with a chapter for each month.

Illustrated with a frontispiece, a folding plane, and twenty-four plates. Collated, complete.

Haggard is best known for his adventure fiction romance novels, pioneering the lost world genre.

A lovely work from the author's own library.

Condition
