Very occasional light spotting, but a set rarely found in such clean condition. Loudon, writer on botany and magazine editor, who when production of her husband's Arboretum (1838) saddled the family with debts of £10,000, turned again to authorship, and tapped the ready Victorian market for books popularizing horticulture, botany, and natural history. Instructions in Gardening for Ladies (1840) was hugely successful; 1350 copies were sold on the day of publication alone. The Ladies' Flower-Garden of Ornamental Annuals (1840), the first in a much-reprinted series of informative illustrated books, was followed by others about bulbs, greenhouse plants, and perennials.
