London: Wm. S. Orr, 1849. First edition, in two volumes (Index, vii, 312; index, 348). Large quarto (20cm x 27cm) in dark green publisher's cloth, impressed gilt decoration to covers and spines. One volume skilfully rebacked, corners worn, lightly scuffed. The first full year of the periodical includes seasonal articles on fruit gardens, the kitchen garden, an apiarian's calendar, greenhouse culture, forcing methods, reviews of shows (e.g., the horticulture show at Chiswick), illustrated with occasional woodcuts. Very good indeed.
