First edition, signed limited issue, number 211 of 750 copies signed by the author. 8vo. 135pp. Original tan buckram, titles and illustration to front cover and spine in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut, pages unopened. The book has been housed in a bespoke cream dust jacket for most of its life, and as such the binding is in impeccable condition. The faintest signs of some bumping to the boards’ corners, otherwise As New. Internally excellent, near-fine. A long poetical sequence on the author’s favourite subject, “which tries to sum up her own horticultural aesthetic and is in some respects superior to its predecessor The Land” (ODNB).
