Full Description

8vo. 263 + (1)pp, text ills. Publisher’s cloth, in dustwrapper. David Allibone’s copy.

Elaborate recreation of the history of a Kentish garden from the middle of the sixteenth century onwards. The garden and its successive owners are entirely fictional (something the author nowhere admits), but the period detail is properly researched and convincing.
