Why We Love This

A Treatise on the Cultivation of the Pineapple and the Management of the Hothouse by William Speechly. Self-published in England in 1796. Hardcover. Second edition, 211 pages, with six engraved plates, four of them large foldouts, showing greenhouse plans for growing pineapples, then a rarity. A very fine and collectible copy, newly rebound in hand-marbled paper on boards and a green cloth spine with a leather title label.

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!
