Cassell's Dictionary of Gardening. An Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Practical Horticulture for all Classes

London, Cassell and Company, Limited, 1901.

Quarto, two volumes bound as one, vi, 480 and ii, 480 pages with hundreds of illustrations plus 19 (of 20) full-page colour plates by A. Fairfax Muckley (it appears that plate 15 was never bound in).

Original half roan and cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine; covers rubbed at the extremities and sunned on the spine, with the cloth a little flecked and bubbled; front endpapers and first blank creased and nibbled damage; occasional light foxing; plates with pencilled instructions to the binder, and some slight wear to the edges (indicating that this copy was bound from the separately-issued parts); a very good copy.

An illustrated dictionary of over 6000 genera of plants, in plain English. With the pictorial bookplate ['Gang forward'] of Edward Charles Stirling on the front pastedown, his tidy ownership stamp to the title-page (and elsewhere).
