The Amateur Gardener. Second Edition (greatly enlarged) of the Fruit, Flower, and Vegetable Garden
E.S Wigg and Sons, Adelaide 1877 - Duodecimo, 132, [4] (index), 8 (advertisements) pages. Original quarter contrasting (red and green) cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine and front cover; covers a little rubbed nd bumped at the extremities, with minor restoration to the joints, and slight wear to the head of the spine; cloth a little marked and flecked; front flyleaf a well-matched replacement; first and last leaves offset; occasional light scattered foxing; a very good copy. A rarity: this is only the second copy we have seen in over 40 years, and Trove records only five institutional holdings. Ernst Bernhard Heyne (1825-1881), botanist and horticulturist, 'was a prodigious writer. Though overshadowed by von Mueller, his botanical and horticultural work greatly contributed to the early development of [the] two colonies' of Victoria and South Australia (Australian Dictionary of Biography, making a rare error in not recording accurately this edition). Ferguson 10397; Crittenden 53 (with a lengthy commentary on its importance). The first edition was published as 'The Fruit, Flower and Vegetable Garden' in 1871 (Ferguson 10396, recording only one copy; Crittenden 47, 'not sighted'; Trove records four copies).
