A Garden Companion
Boston: Anne & David Bromer, 1984. Sweet, Melissa. (31)ff. One of thirty copies. A whimsical ABC manuscript, drawing on the fertile soil of gardening for its inspiration. The book is lettered and illustrated by Melissa Sweet, the work done in vibrant colors entirely by hand. Included are such plants as fava beans and vetch, some letters also representing the work of gardening, hoeing and "under the old oak tree" as examples. Bound by Arno Werner in full maroon morocco, with a gilt-stamped alphabet on the front cover, duplicated in blind on the rear. As charming and fresh as its subject. Very fine in a morocco and linen dropback box. A.e.g. (see photograph in Bromer/Edison, p. 37). (2 1/2 by 1 7/8; 63x48mm).
