Title: By Saint Phocas!
Description: John Gifford, UK, 1943. First Edition, Hardcover. Good Condition/Good. 238 pages. The author of By Saint Phocas, who already has a few novels and many short stories to his credit, moves lightly here from one subject to another ; from Saxifrages to the long-forgotten English vineries; from giant Dahlias to tramps ; from his favourite rock plants, or old-fashioned Roses, or the making of a dry wall, to music, the decline of the village shop, bird-lore, the beauty of trees in winter, or witchcraft. This book, swearing by Saint Phocas, the almost unknown patron saint of gardening, with its gossip about plants and unusual, little-known information and legends, will probably appeal as much to the non-gardener as to the enthusiastic garden-lover.? Book - in Good Plus Plus green boards with gilt lettering - some bumping to the front board, light bumping to the extreme corners and extreme edges, light sunning to the top edges and top of the spine.
