Carter’s Telephone, Yosemite Mountain Bean and more
Four prize essays written by J.E. Rue of Littleton, North Carolina, James Moss of Westminster, Orange County, California (2), and George F. Roessler of Philadelphia.
The essays are a backdrop for the real stars of this show: a visual feast of engravings and illustrations showing a wide-variety of vegetables, the entirety grown to perfection. All of these prize-winners are from the seeds of Johnson & Stokes, Philadelphia seedsmen, with warehouses at that time on Market and Church Streets.
In outstanding condition with OCLC recording no physical copies.
