Archive.org has a host of old gardening books (from mid-19th to mid-20th Century) available in many formats and on a host of topics. I happened across a few in my Pinterest feed and gone completely down the rabbit hole in this treasure trove of information. Sure some ideas might be out of
THE concluding pages for the month of June appeared in an extended form as an article on “The Vogue of the Garden Book” in the Nineteenth Century Review for June, 1900 ; the description of the May-day revels is condensed from a story in the Cornhill Magazine of June, 1897 ; the incident of Meshach Werge’s treasure appeared in the number of In Town for January, 1897 ; and four other short sketches have been published in The Country and the St. James s Gazette.
To the editors of those periodicals I beg to offer my thanks for their kind permission to use the articles or portions of them here.
I am grateful also to two friends for help in the chapters on the country and garden in autumn.
