Gerritsen, Henk, & Piet Oudolf (Foreword by Noel Kingsbury)
Dream Plants for the Natural Garden
Bloomings Books, Hawthorn Vic., 2000.
Quarto; hardcover, with silver-gilt spine titles; 144pp., with many full-colour illustrations. Minor wear. Dustwrapper lightly rubbed and sunned along the spine panel; now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. Very good to near fine. Describes 1200 plant species selected from the practical perspective of natural gardens. These are plants chosen on the basis of their dependable traits in a natural garden, where your attempts at intervention are kept to the minimum. This does not include plants which have to be dug up regularly and pulled apart to stay alive or plants which suddenly just fall by the wayside, but those which can, over the years, be maintained in an average garden without too much in the way of artificial props and bolstering (that is requiring pesticides, artificial fertilisers and armies of garden labourers). Discussed in the book are perennials, bulbs, grasses, ferns and small shrubs which will be able to survive competition from one another or the vagaries of the weather (excepting catastrophes) and will do what is expected of them for many years. This book offers the opportunity to create the natural garden of our dreams.

Hay, Alistair, Monika Gottschalk & Adolfo Holguin
Huanduj Brugmansia
Florilegium, Glebe NSW, 2012.
Quarto; hardcover, with gilt spine and upper board titlers and decorative endpapers; 424pp., with many full-colour illustrations. Dustwrapper. Remainder. New. 'Huanduj' pays homage to one of the most beautiful of garden shrubs or small trees: the genus Brugmansia also known as Angel's Trumpets. The ornamental value of brugmansias was first written about in the 16th century when Joseph de Acosta, a Spanish Jesuit missionary and naturalist, drew attention to the plants' great beauty and wonderful scent, and observed the infrequency with which the plants fruited in gardens, now understood to be a consequence of self-incompatibility. He recorded that they were grown in the Lima gardens of Francisco de Toledo, the fifth Viceroy of Peru, who sent one, as a 'thing worthy of being in the royal gardens' to King Philip of Spain - though history does not record whether it arrived and became established there. These plants have a long history as entheogens in South American shamanistic practises stretching back at least 10,000 years. This monograph provides the gardener, plant breeder, botanist, ethnobotanist and anthropologist with a comprehensive account of this extraordinary genus.

Hobhouse, Henry
Seeds of Wealth Four Plants that Made Men Rich
Macmillan/Pan Macmillan Ltd., London, 2003.
Octavo; hardcover, with silver-gilt spine titling; 255pp., with monochrome line drawings. Moderate wear; flyleaf removed; text block top edge dusted. Dustwrapper lightly rubbed and edgeworn; now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. Very good. In this book, Henry Hobhouse recognises plants as a causal factor in history; he examines four plants: rubber, timber, tobacco and the wine grape, each of which enormously increased the wealth of those who dealt in them, created great new industries and changed the course of history. Ancient Rome's monopoly on wine production had huge economic and hygienic importance. Without rubber, there would have been no development of cars, buses and trucks, bicycles, waterproof clothing or even tennis balls and condoms. Tobacco has largely been condemned for its effects on health and its true role in history ignored. Tobacco has often been used in place of currency and its growth in Virginia supported a colony that produced much of the talent that made Independence possible. Timber shortages led the British Royal Navy to become dependent on American timber. The dearth of timber drove English coal mines deep, which led to the steam pumps, steam engines, and ultimately the Industrial Revolution. These are fascinating stories the effect of minutiae on the great waves of history.'You cannot help but admire and enjoy the company of a man who takes such a novel and global view of history.' - Spectator

Klein, Carol (Jonathan Buckley, illus., Erica Hunningher, ed.)
Plant Personalities Choosing and Growing Plants by Character
Cassell Illustrated/Octopus Publishing Group Ltd., London, 2004.
Quarto; hardcover, with silver-gilt spine-titling; 176pp., with many full-colour photographic illustrations. Near fine in like dustwrapper, now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. Plants can be flamboyant and voluptuous, funny and frivolous, even shy and retiring, but do they really have personalities? In this book, Klein demonstrates how understanding plants' needs and providing the appropriate conditions enables them to develop their true characters - the qualities that make them what they are. Personality traits can be as valuable as height, habit, and flower colour when choosing your plants. Some plants are good-natured, contributing to the overall landscape for months, while others are fleeting, grabbing the spotlight for a brief but breathtaking display. Still others lend a sense of frivolity or sensuality to the garden. Illustrated with superb photographs, Plant Personalities will inspire any gardener to see the unique character in every plant.

Pavord, Anna
The Tulip
Bloomsbury Publishing Plc., London, 1999.
First edition: royal octavo; hardcover, with illustrated endpapers; 440pp., with a decorated title page and many colour and monochrome illustrations. Minor wear; mild toning and faint spotting to text block and page edges. Otherwise near fine and now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. The Tulip is not a gardening book. It is the story of a flower that has made men mad. Greed, desire, anguish, devotion have all played their part in the development of the tulip from a wild flower of the Asian steppes to the world-wide phenomenon it is today. The US alone imports three thousand million tulip bulbs each year, Germany and France even more. Why did the tulip dominate so many lives through so many centuries in so many countries? The author, a self-confessed tulipomaniac, has spent six years looking for answers. No other flower has ever carried so much baggage; it charts political upheavals, illuminates social behaviour, mirrors economic booms and busts, plots the ebb and flow of religious persecution. Roaming through Asia, India, Russia and the Ottoman Empire, the author tells how the tulip arrived from Turkey and took the whole of Western Europe by storm. In the petals of the exquisite English florists' tulips, still exhibited in competition by members of the Wakefield Tulip Society in Yorkshire, runs the blood of flowers first grown by John Evelyn in the middle of the seventeenth century. Sumptuously illustrated from a wide range of sources, the book also features descriptions of eighty wild-species tulips and several hundred garden varieties.

A foreword by tulip expert Anna Pavord explores the blossom's rich cultural history and rounds out this vast and sumptuous collection. This is a book to rival the beauty of the flower itself.
