[With the rare supplement of 1842]. Octavo, pp xvi, 430, (ii); vi, 63, (i), + 8 page publisher's catalogue, very slight age-toning but an impressively clean and sound copy, original cloth, slightly faded, a little bumped at the edges, two small holes in the lower joint, the spine very slightly frayed at head and tail, paper label a little worn and browned. [The Supplement contains descriptions of plants introduced within the intervening six years. It is particularly scarce. The spine label mentions the supplement, so this publisher's binding was intended to contain them both. "The firm were renowned for their services to farmers and horticulturists, and must have made a substantial income from their work; they enjoyed an enviable reputation " - Fussell.]
