Description:

New York: A. O. Moore, 1858. First edition (x,  291,  index, adverts).  Small octavo (19cm) in brown publisher’s cloth with impressed decoration, gilt titles to spine (faded); illustrated with twelve engraved plates and numerous in-text engravings. Warder chief proposition is that because the best farms were ‘destitute of rock for walls’ (He was writing about his experience in the midwest and south) and ‘divested’ of their timber, hedging recommends itself as the best method for enclosing fields and other properties... and especially hedges of the Osage orange, an example of which could once be found on the perimeter of Camp Kilmer in New Jersey. Therefore this comprehensive treatise, as I am sure he says somewhere, on hedging-- materials, methods, tools, etc. Light wear to top and bottom of spine, rear edge worn through in two places; endpapers browned, somewhat dry with some age spotting early and late. A clean, solid copy.

New York: the Author, 1948.  Edition limited to 500 copies printed at Elm Tree Press, Woodstock, Vermont (pp. 18). Reprint by the author of his article in Field & Stream in the same year. Small folio (24cm) in fine blue paper over boards, decorative title label, title to spine. Illustrated with two photographs, watercolour by Pleissner reproduced in b&w; decorative title page, head and tail pieces.  Included is a signed letter from Wertheim, enclosing the book as a gift and with season’s greetings to Judge George Frankenthaler, late of the NY Supreme Court, from whose library our copy originates.  "Frankenthaler was a prominent Republican and father of the noted artist Helen Frankenthaler" (McNaught). This copy with skilfully replaced cloth on the spine; the letter with two folds, sunned along one edge.  Each year for perhaps thirty years Maurice Wertheim (1886-1950) traveled into Quebec to fish for Atlantic salmon on the dry fly, and this is his account, published within two years of his… Read more

Description:
New York: Century, 1907. Second edition (xi, 270, index). Illustrated with pictures by Maxfield Parrish-- 52 plates with tissue guards on stiff card, 26 of which are coloured drawings by Parrish. From the collection of E. Avery McCarthy, travel writer for Saturday Night, whose florid autograph (Christmas 1909) occupies nearly half an ffep, bookplate at rear. Small folio (28 cm x 18 cm) in decorative green cloth, gilt decoration and titles, t.e.g. Top and bottom of spine abraded, corners worn, binding a bit loose. Something of a villa tour, ranging from Florence down through Sienna and to Rome, thence into Genoa, Lombardy, and Venice, and in each place Parrish’s pictures elicit an order and balance suffused in a golden glow (The b&w photos aren’t bad either). As Wharton says in the introduction, Italian gardens were meant more to be lived in than to be admired for their floricultural compositions (the gardens at Giverny)-- and, anyhow, once Spring had passed by, it became far too hot… Read more

Description:
London: T. Payne and Son, 1777. Fourth edition (257 pp.). Tall octavo, contemporary decorative calf with remnants of gilt decoration; marbled epps (remnant of bookplates); hinges starting but holding, corners worn. As illustrations, Whately has chosen various garden features from Wotton, Blenheim, Tinturn Abbey, Painshill, Stowe, and Moore Park among others. These examples are produced in support of a largely analytic description of the elements of a garden (Trees are separated into different types by their different shapes, shades of green, and growths). ‘Gardens’ here are more properly pleasure gardens and the design principles bear on landscapes. An early, influential treatment of landscape design by Thomas Jeffereson’s favourite gardener. A clean, attractive copy.

Description:
London: W. Strahan et al., 1763. First edition (xxxi, 480) with two engraved plates (System of Botany, Elevation of Greenhouse). Octavo, in modern brown three-quarter leather over marbled paper covered boards, five raised bands, gilt lettering and titles to spine, matching endpapers. The breathless title relieves me of the responsibility of summarizing the contents of this scarce book by a ‘Nusery-man of Glocester’; Fussell (More, 68) makes passing reference, noting the nursery, at least, did well enough and was still being carried on by a daughter into the 1820’s. A handsome modern binding and a clean text. A very nice copy indeed of a scarce work.

Description:
Cirencester: S. Rudder, 1789. First edition (vii, 14). Tall 8vo in three-quarter calf over marbled boards, gilt decoration to spine, titles. Clean and tight. ‘Watering’ is a species of controlled flooding whereby water diverted from its natural course along a series of channels onto hay and pasture land, usually in early Spring, and then directed back to the water course from whence it came. This short treatise accounts for the benefits of watering (irrigating) meadows, together with a discussion of the general method, and furnishes a calendar of events so the work is performed at the right time of year. Wright claims great efficacy for this form of irrigation-- early pasturage and greater yields of hay crops especially. BOUND TOGETHER WITH Boswell, George. A Treatise on the Watering of Meadows: Wherein Are Shewn Some of the Many Advantages Arising from that Mode of Practice, Particularly on Coarse, Boggy, or Barren Lands; and the Method of Performing the Work....
