Why We Love This

Elias A. Long's Ornamental Gardening for Americans: A Treatise on Beautifying Homes, Rural Districts, Towns, and Cemeteries was published by Orange Judd in New York in 1885. Hardcover, first edition, 381 pages, with 138 black and white illustrations in the text. The author was a landscape architect -- this was a bestseller. Pages are mildly age-toned otherwise the book is in excellent condition in lightly rubbed and edge-worn green cloth stamped with a design in gilt and black.

About Barbara Farnsworth

My bookstore, an old wooden building at the edge of a New England trout stream, houses thousands of used, rare and antiquarian books, with particular emphasis on Home and Garden subjects -- food and drink, gardening, interior design and architecture. I also carry titles on fashion, children's books and literature. Books really do furnish a room, beautifully!
