The Garden (Dean's Rag Book No. 105)


London: Dean's Rag Book Co. Ltd., [nd].

6 cloth leaves overstitched along the spine. Printed single-sided on facing pages, once "butterfly folded" but fraying along the fore edge has opened the folds. 12.5 x 6.75 inches. A Good copy with well-embedded soil and discoloration showing their "indestructible" claim has been put to the test and otherwise fared fairly well--only the frog graphic on the rear cover appears affected by a small tear in the cloth. No date, ca. 1903-1910. An early publication in the "Dean's Rag Book" series, with patent numbers and "quite indestructible" dogs logo on the rear panel. Charming individual pictures of the objects, creatures, and creations in the garden, including cabbage, sun-dial, dove-cote, bees & beehives. It also contains specific names for flowers (fuchsia, pansy, arum lily, narcissus). Scarce title from the popular series, only 1 in OCLC (Princeton).
