    Mrs Earle begins by saying that she is not going to write a gardening book, a cookery book, or a book on furnishing or education but that she wishes to talk on several subjects as they occur to her through the year. The main body of the text is divided into chapters for each month from January to December, and in each chapter there are comments on cooking.

    This unnumbered and undated edition has a frontispiece showing a garden scene but no illustrations in the text.

On the dust-jacket this edition is listed as one of the additions to the "Nelson shilling library` during the second half of 1910. It is No. 43 in the series and cost 1s. LB, LoEN and OB all date the book [1910].% 0952

  • 15. — Pot-pourri from a | Surrey garden | by | Mrs. C. W. Earle | with an appendix by | Lady Constance Lytton
    London, Edinburgh and New York: Thomas Nelson and Sons Ltd; nd
    18.0 x 11.5 cm   Pp [3-4] 5-366   Rebound
    GB:   *LB   LoEN  

    There are no illustrations in this unnumbered edition which LB and LoEN date [1919].
    Dr Hunter reports that the LoEN copy has a half-title which reads, "Pot pourri from a Surrey garden` and that its pagination runs [1-4] 5-366. Hence the LB copy is likely missing a half-title.% General comments: NUCat records an undated edition published in London by T. Nelson and Sons and held by CSt but it does not specify whether it is the [1910] or [1919] edition.% American editions: NUCat lists a tenth edition, New York: E. P. Dutton and Co, 1898.% 0953 ======================================================================= = Via: UK.AC.RL.EARN; Wed, 19 Aug 87 04:27:47 BST Received: from UKACRL by UK.AC.RL.IB (Mailer X1.24) with BSMTP id 6231; Wed, 19 Aug 87 04:27:43 BS Received: from YORKVM2(MAILER) by UKACRL (Mailer X1.24) id 6227; Wed, 19 Aug 87 03:29:42 BS Received: by YORKVM2 (Mailer X1.23) id 6241; Tue, 18 Aug 87 08:28:09 EDT Date: Tue, 18 Aug 87 08:27:38 EDT From: Ian Taylor <YCSIAN
