About this Item

Two volumes. viii,[480]; [546]pp. plus frontispiece and two plates. Contemporary calf, rebacked preserving the original leather labels. Bookplate on front pastedown and verso of frontispiece. Bright and clean internally. Very good. The first octavo edition of Miller's very popular dictionary, which first appeared (in folio format) in 1731. This constitutes an abridgment of the first volume of the folio edition. The author states that he learned that the price of the folio edition was too high for some who were engaged in the practical art of gardening, and he hopes they will find this less expensive version useful. Philip Miller (1691-1771) was appointed gardener to the Society of Apothecaries in London and made the name of the Chelsea Physic Garden famous throughout European botanical circles. ESTC T61256.
