ECOLOGY FOR GARDENERS., Carroll, Steven B. & Salt, Steven D.
3 Carroll, Steven B. & Salt, Steven D. ECOLOGY FOR GARDENERS.
Portland Timber Press 2005 0881926116 / 9780881926118 Reprint Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good Errol D. Hooper Jr. 
328 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). Colour photographs, b&w drawings. "(T)he authors look at the structure, development, genetics, and reproduction of plants, the most prominent actors in garden ecosystems. They describe other garden organisms, focusing on those with the most influential roles - insects, nematodes, and microorganisms - as well as garden denizens ranging from microscopic prions to elephants. (They) explore nutrient cycles, sunlight, air, water, and the soil - the physical environment within which garden organisms live and function - and they consider the ways plants function in their environment and form communities. They then examine the intricate interactions among garden-dwelling organisms, ranging from the harmful to the beneficial. Once this groundwork is laid, they introduce humans into the garden ecosystem and consider how gardeners can use ecological principles to wisely manage their garden ecosystems. Throughout the book, the authors cite hundreds of examples drawn from personal experience and from the gardening and ecological literature. It becomes clear that gardens - whether a group of potted plants on a patio, a few beds carved out of a lawn, or extensive plantings over several acres - are indeed connected to the natural world in endless and important ways." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling, a few tiny dents on spine and hinges.

WILD MARY: THE LIFE OF MARY WESLEY., Marnham, Patrick.  (Mary Wesley).
6 Marnham, Patrick. (Mary Wesley). WILD MARY: THE LIFE OF MARY WESLEY.
Chatto & Windus, London, 2006, first edition. 
289 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0701179910 B&w plates. "She was born Mary Farmar, related to the Duke of Wellington, and grew up a rebel who believed that she was her mother's least favourite child. Like many girls of her background, she married for escape. - In the late 1930s, she began a fascination with Heinz Ziegler, a Czech university professor and wartime air gunner; his brother, Paul, later a Benedictine monk, also fell under her spell. - At the outb r e ak of the Second World War she was, as she put it, 'roped into Intelligence', where she worked on breaking codes. MI5 and her rackety life during the Blitz eventually inspired her novels ('Jumping the Queue', 'The Camomile Lawn', 'Not That Sort o f Girl', 'A Sensible Life', etc.), many of which were concerned with multiple wartime love affairs. She wrote about the atmosphere of the home front and how the imminence of death loosened inhibitions - her fiction was as sexy and as candid as s he wa s herself. She drew on her eccentric friends and her love of Cornwall and the West Country, while the darkness of her novels was illuminated by a caustic sense of the ridiculous. Her style has been described as arsenic without the old lace. (T his ) is a remarkable book about a woman who was courageous, sensual, talented and ruthless. Readers will enjoy her story not only for its witty anecdotes and devastating one-liners, but also for the intimate portrait it builds of a multi-layer ed p erso nality in which much was hidden." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, previous owner's place, date and signature on half-title page; light browning to edges of text block. Dust jacket has light wrinkling and wear at top.bottom of spi ne an d fla p-folds, some edge wrinkling - mainly along top edge. Very Good/Very Good
