This early work is a fascinating read for any gardening enthusiast or historian, but contains much information that is still useful and practical today. It is a thoroughly recommended title for the amateur or professional arborist or horticulturalist's shelf. Illustrated with 14 plates and 8 diagrams forming a complete how-to guide. Contents Include: Apples; Pears; Plums; Cherries; Peaches - Nectarines - Apricots; Medlars - Quinces - Mulberries; Black, Red and White Currants; Gooseberries; Raspberries - Strawberries; Blackberries - Loganberries - Hybrid Berries; Cobnuts - Filberts - Walnuts - Figs - Grapes; and an Index. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
