The Gardeners' Chronicle - A Weekly Illustrated Journal of Horticulture and Allied Subjects - July to December 1888

£19.99

Product description

A large bound volume of The Gardeners' Chronicle, A Weekly Illustrated Journal of Horticulture and Allied Subjects, Vol. IV Third Series, July to December 1888.

Black boards with gilt spine lettering. Includes an index of contents at the front of the volume. Dyed pink edges to the text block. Illustrated with many black & white line drawings and also full page plates. Includes lots of adverts for gardening supplies. A fascinating record of the history of gardening in the Victorian era: includes tips, features, and plant information, together with records of the weather for the previous week and market prices of plants.

The Gardeners' Chronicle was a British horticulture periodical. It lasted as a title in its own right for nearly 150 years and is still extant as part of the magazine Horticulture Week. Founded in 1841 by the horticulturists Joseph Paxton, Charles Wentworth Dilke, John Lindley and the printer William Bradbury it originally took the form of a traditional newspaper, with both national and foreign news, but also with vast amounts of material sent in by gardeners and scientists, covering every conceivable aspect of gardening. It was noted for its large advertising section.

The boards have some wear at the head and base of the spine, and rubbing wear to the corners. With staining to the front and rear boards. Some foxing on the end papers, the pages are lightly yellowed, but are in a clean condition. Sound binding.
