Mr Middleton's Garden Book

£11.99

Product description

Cecil Henry (CH) Middleton was a celebrity gardener of the 1930s and 1940s. He wrote a weekly column for the Daily Express for many years and also featured in early radio and television broadcasts pre-war and during the war years, when he was associated with the Dig for Victory campaign.
The book is a comprehensive guide to gardening, and many of the tips are doubtless still very valid. The USP, though, is the charming illustrations and reproductions of the cartoon strip "Adam the Gardener" that ran in the Express at the time.

The book lacks a dust jacket, has very slight wear on the binding and slight foxing of the pages but overall is in good condition given it was published in 1941.
