Description

This work is part of the "Book-Lovers Library" series which was edited by Henry B. Wheatley (1838 - 1917). Wheatley was a historian, librarian and scholar of repute and editor of the Book-Lovers Library series. Quoted from the author's "Preliminaries."

"Mrs. Mathews, in her Memoirs of her husband, 1839, mentions the gratification which it afforded Coleridge, when he came from the Gilmans', to visit them at Highgate Hill, to walk
round the garden and gather a handful of flowers to take home with him."

"We know how some of the wisest and best of mankind have delighted in gardens. Even such an inveterate Londoner as Charles Lamb, when he went down to live at Edmonton, took a pleasure in superintending the small plot of ground behind his house there, and watched with interest the progress toward maturity of his Windsor pears and jargonelles."

"How affectionately attached to their gardens and the pursuits connected with the culture of trees, fruits, and flowers Bacon, Evelyn, Temple, Walpole, and other eminent Englishmen have been, it will form part of my duty in the following pages to demonstrate."
