Historiated endpiece. "Nominally, it is the Second Edition of "Gardening in Florida," but in reality, it is a new work-almost entirely so. It has been carefully revised-in most instances, altogether rewritten. Large additions have been made to the list of garden vegetables; and each article on vegetable culture, new or old, has been prepared with reference to the modifications in previous methods,which longer experience, and more extended and closer observation, made desirable." (Introduction). Illustrated with numerous in-text drawings of Florida vegetables. Two pages with errata at rear. Binding with light wear along edges, lightly sunned with spine more pronounced. Previous owner's name inked to front free endpaper. Binding in overall good, interior in very good condition. (Inventory #: 46994)
