Book Description John P. Jewett, Boston MA, 1859, 1860, hardcover, (G++), 1860. John P. Jewett, Boston MA, 1859, 1860, 814 pages, index, 195 b&w illustrations some full-page with tissue guards, one black and cream double-page landscape plan as frontispiece, 6"x 8.5", hardcover, marbled boards with leather spine and corners and gilt titles & gilt on the spine bands, all page edges lightly marbled, corner and edge wear, some light chipping, endpapers very slightly soiled with some darkening from the leather, former owner's small name in pencil on top of title page and on back of frontispiece, otherwise contents clean and tight, book good++ {This is a lovely copy of this classic work. From the preface: "One word on a point to which many words are given in this volume: the spirit in which one should deal with his farm, his flowers, his grounds. Surely it should be that of reverential friendship, not of cold & superficial business relation. This complex, and beautiful mystery, which we call Nature, surely offers us something more than food & clothing; and, believing as I do, that man's "life is more than meat," I cannot speak of the life of that class who seem to live nearest Nature as nothing more than a struggle for that miserable pittance known as a 'living.'"} (G++) 2712 [Os36BE].
