Hardcover. Condition: Good+. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. First Edition; First Printing. Yellow-orange cloth with black titles. Ex-library. Edge, corner and surface wear, especially along front edge. Book is square and binding secure. Some old paper, like from a sack is pasted to both pastedowns, and the free enpaper in the rear is stuck along the bottom edge to the pastedown. On the front free endpaper is a bookplate from the Petersborough New Hampshire Library that indicates this book was withdrawn. I suspect that the paper and glueing on the pastedowns has something to do with the way the book was bound in the library or from the card pockets. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 544 pages; This is a good reference/reading copy of this well-known work on rock gardens and alpines.
