The ingenious Mr Fairchild: the forgotten father of the flower garden

By: Leapman, Michael

Price: £12.00

Quantity: 1 available


Ostensibly a biography of Thomas Fairchild, the book actually derives much of its historical content from the published and unpublished work of his contemporary Richard Bradley. As with all biographies of people of humble backgrounds with little documentary evidence, this relies on some imaginative reconstructions, but does so with more finesse than most. Map of 'Shoreditch and Hoxton, 1700' on front and rear end-papers; photograph of pressed plant specimen on front of dust-jacket. viii + 280 pp, 8 pp of (mainly) colour plates, maps & text figures.
