8vo, XII, 334pp. Hardcover in green/cream cloth covered boards and green garden patterned endpapers with pictorial non price-clipped d/w all in pristine condition now protected in clear archival covering, text and plates are likewise in excellent condition hence the book is classed as overall near-fine with no annotations, foxing or marks either. This is a posthumous selection , published five years after her death with most of the articles written subsequent to her last gardening book published in 1912, when her experience had widened and she was able to reflect and reassess her achievements in gardening and garden design – still recognized as truly remarkable. This 1982 reprint has a col. frontis with colour and b/w plates, excellent diagrams and a good index. Still a joy to read for any gardener and designer.
