GARDEN OPEN TODAY written by Beverley (a man) Nichols. Copyright 1963. Printed in the USA. Book Club Edition. 252 pages of text. Beautiful original line drawing illustrations by William McLaren.

Borrowed from an on-line review of the book by Dianne Foster: Beverley Nichols book GARDEN OPEN TODAY (first published in 1963) is a narrative tour describing his garden which before his death he opened occasionally to the public. The book is lovingly illustrated with whimsical drawings by William McLaren.

Nichols was a "real gardener" who worked side-by-side with several hired gardeners described in his earlier books, including MERRY HALL, LAUGHTER ON THE STAIR, and SUNLIGHT ON THE LAWN. If you haven't discovered Beverley Nichols and you love gardening and/or visiting gardens, and cats, you are in for a treat. His books are humorous and instructive, and definitely for cat lovers. (He wrote several books about cats). In GARDEN OPEN TODAY, he takes you step by step through his current garden (he moved a few times and wrote books about several gardens) pointing out some of the more interesting flowers and features.

Entertaining and informative reading. A personal anecdotal narrative.

Lovely tan and turquoise green hardcover with original dust jacket. Wonderful 1960s graphics on the dust jacket.

Size of the book is about 8 1/2" by 5 3/4."

Condition is great overall. The dust jacket shows some wear. The book underneath was well protected and is in great shape. There are two minor creases but no rips. The inside pages are in excellent shape - no stains and none of the edges are curled. No rips or tears inside.

A wonderful collector's item to add to a vintage garden book collection or a great start to a new collection!

We were treasured!
