The Gardeners' Chronicle for 1843; the Gardeners' Chronicle for 1847
London, Published for the Proprietors, 1843-1847. Leather. London: Published for the Proprietors, 1843-1847. Leather. Very Good. 13" by 9". None. Two handsome annual volumes of The Gardener's Chronicle. Consisting of each issue from the years 1843 and 1847, with January 28th to December 30th, and January 2nd to December 25th, offered respectively. The Gardeners' Chronicle was a British horticulture periodical. It lasted as a title in its own right for nearly 150 years and is still extant as part of the magazine Horticulture Week. Founded in 1841 by the horticulturists Joseph Paxton, Charles Wentworth Dilke, John Lindley and William Bradbury it originally took the form of a traditional newspaper, with both national and foreign news, but also with vast amounts of material sent in by gardeners and scientists, covering every conceivable aspect of gardening. It may be found in this original newspaper format here, with each issue seemingly bound in after being read - evidenced by newsagents' stamps to the rear of some pages and uneven distribution of handling marks throughout the volumes. The year 1843 also contains the unusual addition of a July 1844 issue of The Railway Record, bound in at the rear, alongside a January edition of The Gardener's Chronicle from 1844. Both volumes feature many interesting and detailed diagrams alongside some of the many adverts for which the publication was famed. Scarce. In ornate half calf bindings with cloth covered boards. Externally, a trifle rubbed with some light wear and bumping to extremities. Internally, firmly bound. … [Click Below for Full Description]
