About this Item

Third issuance, one year after the first and in the identical format in all ways. With 50 beautiful colour plates after watercolours by Elgood. Folio, in original polished blue buckram, the spine and upper cover lettered and ruled in gilt, t.e.g. xii, 131 pp. A very handsome copy, the cloth bright with very little evidence of age or wear, the corners still quite sharp, the gilt fresh, internally clean and quite fresh throughout with a bit of toning to the endpapers as is the case in nearly all of the early printings. AN IMPORTANT BOOK, AND A VERY BEAUTIFUL ONE TOO. A horticultural tour through Edwardian England, with notes by the preeminent Ms. Jekyll, who has been described as a premier influence in garden design by English and American gardening enthusiasts. She created over 400 gardens in the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States, and wrote over 1,000 articles for magazines such as 'Country Life' and 'The Garden'. The book is equally well know for the wonderfully reproduced garden paintings by George Elgood, a member of both the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Coloursand the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. This is by far one of the most famous, and beautiful, works of the gardening genre. The first edition has become quite difficult to find, this edition, formatted identically, is every bit as impressive. Bookseller Inventory # 26751
