258pp. Octavo [23 cm] 1/4 yellow cloth with light green paper covered boards and a black ink stamped title on the spine. Very good. The covers are a little bit concave. There are a couple of light soiled marks on the bottom edge of the text block. There are several faint erased pencil notations on the front free endsheet. The dust jacket is in very good condition as well. Very mildly soiled.
From the dust jacket- "... the book's true focus is the philosophy of gardening- what gardening has to teach us about the troubled borders between nature and culture, our attitudes toward wilderness and animals, the urgent environmental questions we face, Anglophilia and class-consciousness in the garden world, the curious politics of the American lawn, and the moral dimensions of landscape."
