About This Item

This is a very beautiful large volume written and illustrated by a renown Victorian-era painter, with her signature on a glued-in insert on the flyleaf (see photo). Its 195 pages contain chapters about the garden through all the months of the year, with 18 full color plates by the author in fine quality prints on heavy teal green card. The cover is also teal green cloth with a large Art Nouveau illustration of a Fritillary in bloom in gilt stamping. This copy must be rated poor condition because the cover is separating from the spine, as shown, and the cloth outer spine is disconnected 3/4 way down. However, the interior is in better condition, with only some browning of outer pages. ALL the plates are present, and are very lovely. This is a gem.

About Anne's Books

I am a dealer in antique linens, and find many intriguing books at estate sales. Now I am sharing them with you through this site. Some are antique, some vintage; I have some scientific volumes from my former career. I also try to acquire books connected with Delaware and mid-Atlantic US history. Please check my inventory; I hope you'll see something to tempt you.
