The Garden's Story by George H. Ellwanger 1800s

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


This is gardening as done in the Victorian era. The boards are green cloth with gold and black print on the spine and front; the edges of boards are beveled; the corners, top and bottom of the spine are bumped and worn. The book is soiled and stained, although not too badly - just enough to give it character. The front hinge is broken but the back hinge is OK and the book is still in one piece; a gold cloth bookmark is in book but no longer attached to binding. Gift dedication and date (1903), in pen, on ffep; top page edges gilded; edges are browned and some staining is evidence of damp damage; print area is clear. 356 pages. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.
