8vo, XII, 279pp. Hardcover with black cloth boards and gilt title on a firm spine with a non-price-clipped pictorial d/w with minor bruising of corners, both in excellent condition now protected in a clear archival covering, Devoid of illustrations, the text is in a first-class state so the book is classified as near fine overall. One of the Bloomsbury Gardening Classics series This is a lively and absorbing account of one man’s experience in his own garden. It is more tthan a book about gardening however as it asks us to examine our hidden feelings aboout nature and our place in the landscape while brilliantly promoting the garden rather than the wild as a great place to rethink our relationship with nature. An enjoyable read rather than a simple gardening book.
