Little is known about this rare find, rescued from the trash
bin at the Athens Book Center in Ohio. After falling in love with the marbled
cover and discovering the beautifully illustrated fold out diagrams, I knew
this copy of The Art of Gardening would be one of the jewels of the rare books
collection at The Enchanted Home.
Printed in 1718 and a piece of Ohio State University’s first library,
this book is a magical piece of history.
