1 Miller, Philip and Thomas Martyn The Gardener's and Botanist's Dictionary; Containing the Best and Newest Methods of Cultivating and Improving the Kitchen, Fruit, and Flower Garden, and Nursery; Of Performing Practical Parts of Agriculture; Of Managing Vineyards, and of Propagating All Sorts of Timber Trees. . . . (4 volumes)
London F. C. and J. Rivington, C. and W. Nicol, R. Baldwin, etc. 1807 First Edition Full Calf Very Good Minus 
Magisterial work on gardening, with some engraved plates. Folio, 44 by 28 cm. Overall, this is a beautiful copy, with a contemporary calf binding. Gilt ruled borders and other simple gilt decoration. Marbled edges and marbled endpapers. Some scuffs and rubbing. The primary issue is the joints which are mostly cracked, but with the boards holding. Because of the weight and size of the volumes, it is our view that it is best to leave things as they are. The binding is unquestionably worth preserving, as the volumes have an august shelf presence even now, and any repair of the joints is unlikely to be wholly satisfactory. Otherwise, some occasional foxing, but generally clean.
