Description

Rare work on St. Vincent. Abbey records a contemporary prospectus for distribution of the work in the island, which states "only a few copies have been sent for sale, but Mr Draper will receive at the Gazette Office the names of those who are disposed to encourage the Bookseller who printed it".

It is a meticulous account of the Botanic Garden, with charming lithographic views, followed by an appendix comprising letters from Dr Anderson to the Secretary of the Society of Arts, relating to plants cultivated in the garden, and a catalogue of plants (Abbey Travel).

Guilding was a Fellow of the Linnaean Society of London and a Member of the Geological and Wernerian Societies of Edinburgh.

Quarto; (11.5 x 9 inches) publisher's blue papered boards, paper label on upper board. Presentation copy from the author. 4 hand colored lithographic plates. Uncut. Boards rubbed and stained, presentation copy by the author (MS inscription to front pastedown partially legible).
