The Royal Horticultural Society Dictionary of Gardening : A Practical and Scientific Encyclopedia of Horticulture (4 volumes)

£19.99

Product description

This Dictionary of Gardening - one might call it an encyclopedia - is designed to be of use not only to the gardener of this country but, as far as possible, to gardeners the world over and especially to those of our American friends who have taken such a keen interest in the collection, hybridization, cultivation and nomenclature of plants. In four volumes, organised alphabetically.

Volume I - A - Cocculus: Green cloth covered boards with gold text to front and spine. Corners slightly bumped. Light scuff marks and wear, shelf wear to bottom edges. Very light foxing to edges of text block and several individual pages.

Volume II - Cochemiea - Javanicus: Green cloth covered boards with gold text to front and spine. Corners slightly bumped. Scuffing and fade marks to front and rear, spine faded. Shelf wear to bottom edges. Signs of water damage to the rear board, which is crinkled, and several pages to the front and rear of the volume.

Volume III - Jeffersonia - Ptychorraphis: Green cloth covered boards with gold text to front and spine. Corners slightly bumped. Scuff marks to front and rear, spine faded. Very light foxing to edges of text block and first and last few pages.

Volume IV - Ptychosperma - Zygostates: Green cloth covered boards with gold text to front and spine. Corners slightly bumped. Scuff marks to boards and spine. Very light foxing to edges of text block.
