In good condition here is a super antique copy of Hardy Perennials and Old-Fashioned Garden Flowers by John Wood. Undated but would have been published in the 1890s by L Upcott Gill, London. With delightful decorative boards and a number of black line drawn illustrations. 

Inside the pages are clean, bright and tightly bound. Has an inscription on the half-title page (see photos), but no other writing or markings of previous ownership. Has some charming vintage adverts at the beginning and end. Also includes a guide to flowering periods by month and a list of the colours of the flowers.

Olive green cloth covered boards have striking decoration to the front and spine, and gilt titles. Again in top order with just a little rubbing to the corners and also to the spine ends where there are a few small splits in the cloth. Also with a small amount of rubbing along the spine joints.

Your antique copy of Hardy Perennials and Old-Fashioned Flowers will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. A gift message can be included in the package if desired. 

H 20 cm x W 14 cm, 416 pages, 0.57 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (There are just a very few countries which I am unable to ship to).

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped but sent simply in the full protective packaging please add a note to the order.
