Cassell's Dictionary of Practical Gardening on CD

Cassell's dictionary of practical gardening, an illustrated encyclopedia of practical horticulture for all classes from 1902.

THE literature of gardening increased by leaps and bounds during the closing years of the nineteenth century, and the first few months of the twentieth saw an enormous influx of books on the subject. There is evidence in abundance, in this and in other directions, that interest in horticulture has grown, and is growing, rapidly.

In adding to horticultural literature an item so considerable as a dictionary of nearly a thousand pages, graced with upwards of one thousand illustrations, Editor and Publishers base their hopes of success on the signs and tokens of increased interest in gardening just referred to, on the surprising scarcity of books bearing this simple form, on giving a value for the money asked never before attempted, on the absolutely practical nature of the publication, which caters neither for the scientist nor the dilettante, but merely for the cultivator

assell's Dictionary Of Gardening is not a mere list of names and phrases. Its leading idea is to choose from the hundreds of thousands of plants in cultivation all that are worthy of being grown, and to tell everything about them that the cultivator is likely to want to know. Thus, it commences its remarks on each subject with a description, follows with information on propagation, soil, and general culture, and adds lists of species and varieties, telling the height to which they grow, the month in which they bloom, their hardiness or otherwise, and the colour of their flowers. The lists are divided into two sections, "Principal Species" and " Other Species," as an aid to selectors.

Its illustrations comprise practical as well as ornamental figures, showing almost every operation of the garden.

Library Includes two {2} volumes:

:: Vol 1. ~ 524 pages

:: Vol 2. ~ 518 pages
