Antique Garden Book with colored prints, so rare to find these days, this book is entitled Lilies, Garden Flowers in Color.  Written by A. Grove, edited by R. Hooper Pearson of the Gardeners' Chronicle, this book is undated but is most likely from 1910-1912 {I found it being advertised as a "wonderful garden book" in a publication in from 1912 for 75 cents!} 

Green cover with a pasted down color illustration, this book features 8 color plates of lilies, blank on the reverse.  116 pages, an appendix in the back of species, varieties etc. In good condition, these books were loved and well-kept by an avid gardener. Pages were hand cut, there is some foxing here and there. A true treasure for your gardening collection, to display with your antique books, your tools, in your sunroom or potting shed.
