Golden Gate Park, Golden Gate Bridge Garden, as well as glimpses of 23 private city gardens that illustrate the range of garden styles possible in the city by the bay. Striking color and a some vintage duotone photographs convey the magic of these private worlds, and plans for each garden are furnished.

Store Description

I do not have a brick and mortar storefront, listing from home utilizing HomeBase - Nearly all of the books listed are only available single copy, some are new/as new - most are fine or very good - Many unusual/ Collectible/Signed - First Editions/1st printing when possible. I have been a lover and collector of books since early childhood, participating in Metaphysical and Art Bookstore during the 1970's in San Francisco, Ca., Hence, many of the Spiritual, Art and Fantasy/Science Fiction - unusual books are from my private library collection. Art, Beauty, Film, Higher Knowledge - and books that inspire - these continue to come my way and I would love to make them available to others.
