This is an interesting inventory of some of the hazards had befall the vegetable and fruit gardener. For every insect there is a description of the damage it can inflict and an embossed leaf from the particular plant that can be attacked. Pages are holed, nibbled, stained and cut to show how, for instance, the snail, leaf miner or beetle can make the gardener's life a misery at times! The book is hand made and bound, with a pale green suede spine. A delight to handle.
