8vo 148pp. Hardcover in brown cloth with a non price-clipped d/w both still in good condition with significant shelf-wear to all edges and a well faded spine however now protected by clear archival covering, text is also in good condition with all b/w photos present and only very minor page soiling plus a neat handwritten prior owner inscription on an internal dedication page from November 1945. Books by the famous Edna Walling are now fairly sparse and it is a delight to read whilst still being current and as totally instructional as when Australia was looking towards the post war period when the simple joys of gardening and garden design were so very important. 150 illustrations and b/w photos adorn her writing throughout this still attractive though well-loved book.
