Garden History


London : Phoenix House, in association with George Rainbird, (1964). First edition. An encyclopaedic view of gardens and gardening in Britain, with alphabetical entries under styles, types, features, plants and people, and with a county by county gazetteer. Contributors include Alice M. Coats, Miles Hadfield, Barbara Jones, Raymond Lister, etc. The individual entries are unsigned, but Barbara Jones almost certainly provided the text on follies, grottoes, sham castles, hermit cells, and probably more. 
Post 8vo. (320)pp. Numerous plates, twelve double-page and in colour. Text illustrations. Original pictorial boards; mild spotting of edges, but a good copy in the original clear acetate dust-jacket - a little worn and owners name on fep.
