With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

1 Tipping, H. Avray English Gardens
London Country Life, LTD 1925 First Cloth Very Good 
Folio. lxiv + 375 pp. Profusely illustrated with black and white photos of grounds surrounding both great country seats as well as more bucolic thatched cottages. Like the other Country Life books authored by Tipping, this one captures a vanishing way of life, and there is a beauty and satisfaction to the black and white photos that can elude color photos. Above all else there is a meticulousness to the prose accompanying the photos that brings a rigor to the subject that is both accessible and yet raises this book from a trivil coffee table book. Gardening is treated not as a minor decorative art but as a glory of civilization, one of history and historical movement, and one deserving of serious contemplation. Minor soilage to green boards. Interior clean and tight. Overall at least very good in condition. The book is extra-heavy, weighing over seven pounds, and so extra shipping charges may have to be added, especially if shipped overseas. 
Price: 175.00 USD
