Adelaide, E.S. Wigg and Sons, 1877 (second edition).
Duodecimo, 132,  (index), 8 (advertisements) pages.
Original quarter contrasting (red and green) cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine and front cover; covers flecked, lightly marked, and lightly worn at the extremities, edges lightly foxed, front endpaper a little marked, first and last pages offset; a very good copy (internally excellent).
A rarity: this is only the third copy we have seen in over 40 years, and Trove records only five institutional holdings. Ernst Bernhard Heyne (1825-1881), botanist and horticulturist, 'was a prodigious writer. Though overshadowed by von Mueller, his botanical and horticultural work greatly contributed to the early development of [the] two colonies' of Victoria and South Australia ('Australian Dictionary of Biography', making a rare error in not recording accurately this edition). Ferguson 10397; Crittenden 53 (with a lengthy commentary on its importance). The first edition was published as 'The Fruit, Flower and Vegetable Garden' in 1871 (Ferguson 10396, recording only one copy; Crittenden 47, 'not sighted'; Trove records four copies).
