This is a lovely shabby old garden reference book dating back to 1900. It has many colored and black and white illlustrations. There are 415 yellowed pages. Part of the binding's cover is coming off, the frontcover is beginning to come loose and I can detect a very slight musty smell. There are also a few loose and torn pages. Still, this is a lovely book with really nice colored illustrations. It measures almost 10 1/4 by almost 7 1/4 inches. Great for display, copying, or artwork. Convo me with questions!
