400 g; 160 pages, 20 black-and-white plates, and one plan, indexed. (The front fold over indicates 20 black and white plates, the list of illustrations only numbers 19!) The author and his wife purchased a derelict Devonshire vicarage, and this book details their efforts (and tribulations) to create a welcoming space. Part biographical, the book nevertheless is of extreme interest to the avid gardener. There is no damage worth reporting to the book or the dust jacket, other than a small brown mark on the penultimate page right-hand margin, from the death of a flying insect. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Illustrator: Photographic. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Gardening; Local History -- Britain; Inventory No: 0216096.
