Fuller, Andrew S., The Small Fruit Culturist. (New York: Orange Judd, ©1867)

DuoDecimo (12mo). iv, [2], 7-276, [8 adv.] pages.  Profusely illustrated.  Hardcover. Bound in green cloth-covered boards stamped in gilt on spine and front cover stamped in gilt and blind with gilt raspberry in blind frame. front cover repeated on rear in blind only.

Condition: Ex-Library.  Good only. Corners bumped and worn through. Spine strip has 3/4 inch tears to both sides of top near hinge. Bottom of spine strip bumped. Book plate on front paste-down scratched of all identifying information.  Binding solid and hinges uncracked.  A good copy, mishandled.

A wide ranging study of small fruit culture covering basics and listing many dozens of fruit no longer available or if so available from one or two sources.  A great book for the plant hunter.  I have grown a variety or two listed within these covers and can tell you that some are worth saving if you can find them.
