Whately on Gardening & Anderson on Planting Thomas Whately & Agricola
1791. Condition: Very Good. See detailed description and photo's. I have looked online for similar copies of this book. I have not found any. I don't know if this is a "hybrid" bound privately for an individual. Please look at photo's for additional info I don't give here. I have more photo's so if you need to see more, please email. This is an 8 1/2" tall brown hardcover (probably a hard leather) with gold print on the spine. The spine reads "WHATELY ON GARDENING & ANDERSON ON PLANTING" The boards are showing rubbing and a little bumping along edges and corners. Boards are in Very Good or better condition. There is a bookplate with name (George de Ligne Gregory) on in the inside front board. The ffep is detached and has picked-up the outline of the bookplate and other items that must have been laid in. The first title page reads "OBSERVATIONS ON MODERN GARDENING, ILLUSTRATED BY DESCRIPTIONS" Printed for T. Payne MDCCLXX" There is no other print info stated. I found the author's name (Thomas Whately) on other sites where just that title was listed. This has 257 pages. After that comes the next part of the book. "MISCELLANEOUS OBSERVATIONS ON PLANTING AND TRAINING TIMBER-TREES; PARTICULARLY CALCULATED FOR THE CLIMATE OF SCOTLAND. IN A SERIES OF LETTERS" by Agricola (James Anderson). This was printed for Charlie Elliot, Edinburgh & Thomas Cadell, London. Only print info stated is M, DCC, LXXVII. This is 230 pages. There are no illustrations in the book. The pages are clean/unmarked but with some light foxing. Pages are tight. The dates stated correspond to the year each book … [Click Below for Full Description]
