by [Color Plate Book] .

Publisher Information:
W. Robinson, London: 1903-05.

A Very Good plus sound set bound in blue cloth with gilt stamping to the spine and front cover. Top edge gilt with deckled fore-edges. William Robinson (1838 1935) was an Irish practical gardener and journalist whose ideas about wild gardening spurred the movement that led to the popularising of the English cottage garden, a parallel to the search for honest simplicity and vernacular style of the British Arts and Crafts movement. Robinson advocated more natural and less formal-looking plantings of hardy perennials, shrubs, and climbers, and reacted against the High Victorian patterned gardening, which used tropical materials grown in greenhouses.The set contains a total of 66 chromolithographs with tissue guards as well as numerous black and white engravings.
