Shirley James Hibberd (ed.) | London: Groombridge and Sons, 1879
(other volumes available as well)

In good condition with some wear to binding. Binding in tact but loosening. Includes several fold-out illustration. Original decorative cloth with gilt detailing.

An extensively illustrated periodical, something of an early landmark in the history of amateur gardening. It began publication in 1858, and Hibberd remained as editor until 1875. Throughout its life, it featured an extensive array of wood- engraved illustrations, and beginning with the volume for 1868, chromolithographed color plates, usually of floral or other botanical specimens, but occasionally of views of gardens or arrangements. In addition to the uncolored wood-engravings, here present are 140 chromo plates, including some folding plates in the later volumes. Hibberd (1825 - 1890) was a champion of the decorative garden and amateur gardening, published a number of individual books and manuals on associated topics.

This listing is for one volume. We have seven more volumes available for purchase in this series ranging from 1869 through 1876.
