brown end-papers; Every one familiar with a garden knows that one of the chief cares therein is combating the various insects and other pests that infest it. Without clear knowledge and continued attention in this way much of the labour and expense devoted to the garden will be thrown away. The object of this book is the collection, in a handy form, of information on this and other topics embraced under the general heading of "Garden Receipts." Great pains have been taken to make the collection of Receipts, &c., as complete as possible. A great variety being given for one purpose, is justified by the fact that one remedy easily applied in a given district may be too expensive in another; and by the extreme difficulty of getting rid of many of the pests alluded to in these pages. The Glossary of the materials used is made a special feature, and is as complete as possible. Although the arrangement of both the Receipts and Glossary is alphabetical, a copious Index has been added to facilitate reference. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 160 pages. Slight foxing front/rear pages, but body of book mostly clean and unfoxed. Gilt titles spine, black titles front. Inner hinges starting (but only just). Includes glossary of materials & index. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Gardening; Garden Pests; Plant Diseases; Britain/UK; Gardening. Pictures of this item not already displayed here available upon request. Inventory No: 3067.
