London: Longmans, Green and Co. Ltd, 1904. 4to. Second edition. First published in the same year. Original blue cloth, gilt. Tissue-guarded, colour plates reproducing water-colours by George S. Elgood, R.I. throughout. Covers marked and discoloured. It is likely that the jacket became partially stuck to the cloth and removing it took some colour from the spine and front board and left traces of the jacket fixed to the edge of the back board. Corners bumped. A little wear to the extremities. Bookplate on front pastedown. Ink ownership dated '1904 Xmas' on blank prelim. One of the tissue-guards (for 'Blyborough: Hollyhocks') is missing. Contents clean. Very good. Item #5009
Jekyll's notes accompany the illustrations. Several Scottish and Irish gardens are included despite the title.
