About This Item

New York: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1901. Four bound volumes. Large quartos (37cm); uniform half-morocco over pebble-grained cloth. Original pictorial cover wraps bound in. Comprises the first four volumes (26 issues) of this lavishly illustrated periodical. Slight rubbing to bindings at corners and joints; second volume with a tiny chip to leather at crown; contents complete, clean and unmarked. Binder's ticket of Martin Merz & Son, Jamestown, NY to each volume.

Though founding editor L.H. Bailey was considered the foremost horticultural writer of his time, this expensively-produced journal was directed more to the interests of the gentleman farmer than to scientific horticulture - features included profiles of such "country seats" as Ellerslie, the estate of Levi P. Morton in Rhinebeck, New York; and the lavish "Japanese" gardens at the summer estate of John and Isabella Gardner in Brookline, Mass. Excursions into the realms of prize dog-breeding, viticulture, shotgunning and angling, and lawn sports convey a vivid picture of life and leisure among the upper classes in Gilded Age America.
