"The Gardener's Reading Guide" is the first popular bibliography devoted to the enduring pastime of gardening. More than 3,000 fully annotated entries describe all types of gardening books, from gardening anthologies and personal narratives to the vast array of how-to titles. This endlessly beguiling volume includes current titles as well as out-of-print classics on these gardening subjects: The Personal Side of GardeningHow-to GardeningSpecific Gardening MethodsSpecial Types of GardensRegional GardeningMiscellaneous Gardening Topics
The names of garden societies, as well as information on where to find the books, are also included.
A vibrant bouquet of both favorite and forgotten titles--and illustrated throughout with charming line engravings-- "The Gardener's Reading Guide" --is the consummate gift for the curious gardener, who already knows that the most common creature burrowing in the garden is, of course, the bookworm. Minor shelf wear.
