Item Description: Random House USA Inc, India, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 175 x 99 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Everything s coming up corpses. Louise Eldridge is taking her popular television show, Gardening with Nature, on location to film a garden tour at the historic Litchfield Falls Inn. It s a weekend in the country that promises rest, relaxation, and some of New England s most beautiful gardens. But the local grapevine whispers of warring lovers, botanical scams, academic scandal, and family finagling. The tension is so thick you can hardly cut it with a scythe. And then the uneasy group of assembled guests begin to meet with the most unfortunate of accidents. Suddenly Louise suspects that someone is playing Grim Reaper in the Litchfield Falls paradise. How many more guests--including one nosy garden show host--are about to be cut down?. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780553577365

Item Description: 1876. Book Condition: Very Good. KING, George. A MANUAL OF CINCHONA CULTIVATION IN INDIA. Calcutta: Office of the Superintendent of Government Printing, 1876. [4], 80, 3 pp., + 1 plate of an apparatus used in the preparation of Cinchona alkaloids. First edition. Bound with: DESCRIPTION OF THE PROCESS AT PRESENT USED FOR MANUFACTURING "CINCHONA FEBRIFUGE" AT THE SIKKIM PLANTATIONS, by C. H. Wood, Government Quinologist. [Calcutta: Office of the Superintendent of Government Printing, 1876]. 3 pp. Folio, 32.5 x 20.5 cm, cloth-backed paper boards with King's title printed to upper board. Ex-library, with all of the usual markings. Binding is only good plus: worn and scuffed, with boards chipped and backstrip starting. Text is clean but with several dog-eared leaves, but the text is very good overall. Scarce. This publication is from early in the distinguished career of the botanist Sir George King (1840-1909), written just as he was transitioning out of military-medical positions within the British Army in India. In 1871, before he had begun work on his monumental survey of the flora of the Malayan peninsula (1889), and before he was appointed the (first) Director of the Botanical Survey of India (1890) or had been awarded the Linnean Medal (1901), King was appointed superintendent of the Royal Botanic Garden, Calcutta, and of cinchona cultivation in Bengal. As manager of the cinchona department King substituted quinine-yielding cinchonas for the poorer kinds previously grown, inaugurated in 1887 an economic method of separating quinine, and established in 1893 a self- supporting method of distributing the drug at a low price. The humane services which King rendered in connection with quinine were acknowledged by the French who bestowed the grade of officier de l'instruction publique, and by the gift of a ring of honor from Tsar Alexander III. (David Prain, `King, Sir George (1840-1909)', rev. Andrew Grout, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004). Bookseller Inventory # 88086

Item Description: Office of the Superintendant of Government Printing, Calcutta, 1876. First. First. Plate. [ii], 80, 2, [2]pp. 1 vols. Folio. King's important work on the manufacture of quinine has become increasingly scarce.Quinine alkaloids and bark had become the standard treatment for malaria as early as 1825. However, methods of cultivation took were ruinous to the plants themselves and within 30 years demand for the bark (which only increased) was unable to be met. Forced to look abroad, cinchona plants - native to South America - were evenutally successfully cultivated in Travancore and Sikkim. As superindentant of the Royal Botanical Garden at Calcutta George King played a pivotal role in this and had "urged his superiors that cinchonas benefits should be extended to reach all the population. By 1876 he organized the production of cheap febrifuge in Sikkim, out of crude extracts of cinchona, and its distribution through the Royal Mail's post offices in India in 5-pice packets (about one English farthing)" (Drayton). In 1887, he inaugurated "an economic method of separating quinine, and established in 1893 a self-supporting method of distributing the drug at a low price" (ODNB).

Syst. ii. 212. The genus Gaylussacia, so named after M. Gay Lussac, the eminent French Chemist and Philosopher, differs from Vaccinium in the same way as Arctostaphylos from Arbutus--it has but a single seed in each cell. The species are chiefly found in Brazil, where they are common, Peru, and the North of India, and among them are several which, as this species shews, would be worth introducing to cultivation. G. Pseudovaccinium is stated to be a native of sandy open plains in Brazil. Auguste de St. Hilaire says that he found it on the coast from the city of Caravellos in the Province of Porto Seguro as far as the island of St. Catharine, and that it forms a shrub from one to two and a half feet hijh. At least it is to be presumed that this is the plant he means, December, 1844. 2 c although he describes the corolla as somewhat narrow, and the ovary as 5-celled with 1-seeded cells.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1841 Excerpt: .from the plant in the Horticultural Garden. But such an assertion is destitute of all proof: and Dr. Royle by no means supports it; he who had such ample means of studying Indian firs in their native mountains, merely says that the opinions of Mr. Lambert and Professor Don, lead him to suppose there may be some ambiguity on the subject. Certainly then the Abies Morinda of the Horticultural Garden is not A. Smithiana, whatever that may prove to be. Mr. Gordon says that the cones of A. Smithiana are not half the size of those of A. Khutrow. Now the cones of the latter are figured by Dr. Royle, and measure as nearly as may be 6 inches in length; the cones of the former, as figured by Dr. Wallich are 5 inches 6-10ths and a half long; a difference which in such matters amounts to nothing. It is clear therefore that the cones Mr. Gordon has examined are not cones of A. Smithiana at all, which is also confirmed by his statement that the young seedlings of what he calls A. Smithiana, are much slenderer and smaller than those of A. Morinda; a circumstance completely at variance with the character of the former species. That the Chiswick plant is A. Khutrow is asserted positively by Dr. Royle, who says he immediately recognised it. And its foliage corresponds with that represented at t. 14 of his illustrations. While, however, Mr. Gordon seems wrong in his supposition that the Abies Morinda of the Horticultural Garden is A. Smithiana, he is certainly right in saying that he has two distinct kinds of cones of the Abies genus from British India. There are doubtless two Himalayan Spruces, of which one may be called A. Khutrow, while the other bears the name of A. Morinda; but to which the old plant in the Horticultural Garden belongs cannot be determined for the present. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781130776911

But such an assertion is destitute of all proof: and Dr. Royle by no means supports it; he who had such ample means of studying Indian firs in their native mountains, merely says that the opinions of Mr. Lambert and Professor Don, lead him to suppose there may be some ambiguity on the subject. Certainly then the Abies Morinda of the Horticultural Garden is not A. Smithiana, whatever that may prove to be. Mr. Gordon says that the cones of A. Smithiana are not half the size of those of A. Khutrow. Now the cones of the latter are figured by Dr. Royle, and measure as nearly as may be 6 inches in length; the cones of the former, as figured by Dr. Wallich are 5 inches 6-10ths and a half long; a difference which in such matters amounts to nothing. It is clear therefore that the cones Mr. Gordon has examined are not cones of A. Smithiana at all, which is also confirmed by his statement that the young seedlings of what he calls A. Smithiana, are much slenderer and smaller than those of A. Morinda; a circumstance completely at variance with the character of the former species. That the Chiswick plant is A. Khutrow is asserted positively by Dr. Royle, who says he immediately recognised it. And its foliage corresponds with that represented at t. 14 of his illustrations.

Syst. ii. 212. The genus Gaylussacia, so named after M. Gay Lussac, the eminent French Chemist and Philosopher, differs from Vaccinium in the same way as Arctostaphylos from Arbutus--it has but a single seed in each cell. The species are chiefly found in Brazil, where they are common, Peru, and the North of India, and among them are several which, as this species shews, would be worth introducing to cultivation. G. Pseudovaccinium is stated to be a native of sandy open plains in Brazil. Auguste de St. Hilaire says that he found it on the coast from the city of Caravellos in the Province of Porto Seguro as far as the island of St. Catharine, and that it forms a shrub from one to two and a half feet hijh. At least it is to be presumed that this is the plant he means, December, 1844. 2 c although he describes the corolla as somewhat narrow, and the ovary as 5-celled with 1-seeded cells.

It has, with capital raised in England, caused railways to be constructed, so as to connect and bind together all the principal places throughout the continent, with many engineering works of the first magnitude, viaducts over big rivers and broad floodbasins, and inclines with stiff gradients up mountain-sides. It has carried out scientific work of magnitude yet of intricacy and minuteness in the trigonometrical survey, the geological survey, the Botanical Gardens, the meteorological observations. Such, in the most brief and rapid summary, is what British rule has heretofore essayed to do and actually done. It is daily attempting and accomplishing more and more, never satisfied with progress made up to date, but ever striving to advance further. In the next chapter I shall consider how far the results in regard to the national condition have been commensurate with all this action.

From the Introduction: The district of Dang lies between 20.39 degree to 21.5 degree North latitudes and 72.29 degree to 73.51 degree East longitudes. The Dang is comprised of 311 Villages and has an area of 1764 sq. km. Even though Dangs lies about 200 kilometers north of Metropolitan Mumbai, the Dang District remains quite isolated and materially developed. Encompassing 1764 sq. km. in a rugged valley, the Dangs is noted for its still largely pristine teak forests. The district has an overall literacy rate of 75.16% (Male: 83.06%, Female: 67.38%). Almost 100% of the population resides in the countryside, sustaining themselves, just above the subsistence level by growing local varieties of millet and other seed crops. However, this is a district where all the 311 villages are electrified and connected with maximum number of black top roads. The Dangs is the abode of tribals i.e. Varli, Kukna, Bhil, Nayaka and Kotvariya. All the villages of the district are fully covered by dense forests named as Mahal, Kalibel, Galkund, Don, Waghai and Pipaldahad. As per the 2011 census, the population of the district was 228, 291. The Dangs is 100% tribal district declared by the Economic Times and also it was one of the most backward districts among top 20 in India mentioned in the bulletin of Planning Commission but Dangis have started coming out of the extreme poverty by opting mixed crops in their regular agricultural practices. Dangis are far beyond the other tribals of the country. They have started innovative ways of irrigation to their farms and youth of the community has started opting jobs in service sector.

Voigt was careful to note down the native Bengalee names of the plants so that specimens might be more easily procured from local Indian gardeners. A good copy of an uncommon work.

Item Description: Read Books. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW PRINT ON DEMAND., Firminger's Manual Of Gardening For India, W. Burns, FIRMINGERS MANUAL OF GARDENING FOR INDIA Seventh Edition, Revised and Edited BY W. BURNS, D. SC. Edin. Economic Botanist to the Government of Bombay To grou every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food. Gen. ii, 9. CALCUTTA SIMLA THACKER, SPINK CO 1930 First Edition, 1863. Second Edition, 1869. Third Edition, 1874. Fourth Edition, 1890. Fifth Edition, 1904. Sixth Edition, 1918. Printed by Thackers Press and Directories, Ltd., 6, Mangoe Lane, Calcutta, and Published by J. Chaplin, of Thacker, Spink Co., 3, Esplanade, Calcutta. . PREFACE TO SEVENTH EDITION. ALTERATIONS and additions have been made, mainly in the general portions, in order to bring the book up to date. W. B. January, 1930. PREFACE TO SIXTH EDITION. DUEING Firminger s lifetime editions of this Manual were issued in 1863, 1869, and 1874. The fourth and fifth editions were edited respectively by Mr. St. John Jackson and Mr. J. Cameron who brought the work up to date for the times when these editions were published, namely, 1890 and 1904. The editor of the present edition has taken upon himself the difficult task of revising the book so as to bring it up to darte for the year of issue. A work of this kind, written originally by one man, and revised by three others at different times, may to some extent lack coherence, but it contains at least the collected experience of its author and editors. An observant man, who attends personally to his garden, gains facts that are generally useful hence Firmingers original observations, though old, are none the less valuable. At the same time, progress in horticulture and the pure sciences underlying it, has been extra ordinarily rapid of late years in all civilizedcountries. Not only so, but one country can now appropriate, for its own use, discoveries made in other countries with similar climates. India has felt this wave of progress and has profited by discoveries elsewhere. It is now a different place from what it was when Firminger wrote. The aim of the present editor has been to preserve all those portions by Firminger and previous editors which are as true now as ever, and to rewrite those parts that required to be brought up to date. It is hoped that a Manual with so long a record of usefulness will thus continue to be a standard work on its subject. W. B. PREFACE TO FIRST EDITION. THE want of a practical and comprehensive work upon Gardening, expressly adapted to this country, has been much felt, I believe, by all who have had the management of a garden in India. The Agricultural and Horticultural Society of India indeed have long since acknowledged the existence of such a want by the offers they have repeatedly made of a premium for the best treatise upon the subject that should be presented to them before a certain stated time. These offers have in no single instance met with a response. It was not till, after every inquiry possible, I had ascertained that there was no prospect whatever of a work of the kind being undertaken by some other hand, that I resolved upon commencing one myself, and placing before the public such amount of information as, during my hours of recreation and leisure, I have been able to collect upon the subject. By a residence of several years at Ferozepore, I had made myself well acquainted with the cultivation of a garden in the North-West Provinces when, on removal to Howrah, by the practical knowledge Iacquired in my own garden, as well as by observation of what was done in others I had the means of visiting, I became thorough ly conversant with the practice of gardening as applicable to Bengal. The ready access also that I then had, both to the Government Botanical Gardens and to those of the Agri-Horticultural Society, served to put within my reach much very important information concerning numerous plants, which I could not otherwise have obtained.
