Every Man his own Gardener. Being a New, and much more Complete Gardener's Kalendar and General Director, than any Hitherto Published. Twelfth Edition.

This volume is fully bound in leather over boards, hardback. The front label has in the centre a previous owners signature "George J.

Pasted above this is a small paper label with "Given to the Trust in June 1994 by; Joel Downing". There are other annotations on this page. Written in ink on the top left corner of the title page is another previous owners signature "Louisa J. Wingfield". Written in ink across the rear free end page is another signature "William ...?
