Description
With two-color printing, ribbon marker, and gold-stamped spine, this elegantly designed book brings together three unique gardening manuscripts by 17th-century writer John Evelyn—the author of Sylva, on trees and timber management, and a diarist second only in reputation to that of his friend Samuel Pepys. In Directions for the Gardiner, Evelyn offers valuable and timeless advice on how to cultivate and tend perennials, annuals, root vegetables and trees, with lists of plants and gardening terms, and tools. The Kalendarium Hortense and the Acetaria, the other two works here, are equally fascinating for their mixture of practical advice and insights into 17th-century horticulture.

"This is a lovely edition that will charm all bookish gardeners."—Library Journal
