    The title-page is printed in red and green. Printed on the verso of the title-page is "Second edition'.% General comments: Bitting 54 cites an edition of 1906 which I believe to be a typographical error. Axford 38 repeats the error.
    For information about the series and its editor, see the series title, "Handbooks of practical gardening", and Roberts, Dr Harry.% 0263
