ECOLOGY FOR GARDENERS., Carroll, Steven B. & Salt, Steven D.
1 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.

ANTIQUE PEWTER OF THE BRITISH ISLES.  A BRIEF SURVEY OF WHAT HAS BEEN MADE IN PEWTER IN ENGLAND AND THE BRITISH ISLES, FROM THE TIME OF QUEEN ELIZABETH I TO THE REIGN OF QUEEN VICTORIA., Michaelis, Ronald F.
2 Michaelis, Ronald F. ANTIQUE PEWTER OF THE BRITISH ISLES. A BRIEF SURVEY OF WHAT HAS BEEN MADE IN PEWTER IN ENGLAND AND THE BRITISH ISLES, FROM THE TIME OF QUEEN ELIZABETH I TO THE REIGN OF QUEEN VICTORIA.
G. Bell and Sons, London, 1955, first edition. 
118 pp + 40 b&w plates, 8vo (8 11/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w drawings, plates. "The author has tackled the subject from an unusual viewpoint, so as to help collectors in examining the various objects made in pewter, particularly in the British Isles, in conjunction with the earlier recorded information about the methods of manufacture and the styles in vogue in bygone days. The records of the Worshipful Company of Pewterers of London have been freely drawn upon. Extracts f r o m t hem have been included, which should help students and collectors to decide for themselves the merits or otherwise of particular objects, and to gauge the comparative rarity of individual specimens of pewter-ware. The features which dist in gu is h t he pewter of one period from that of another are made clear, either in the text or by line and half-tone illustrations, and the various classes of pewter-ware have been grouped in separate chapters. There are also a full bibliography, in dex , a nd n ote s indicating the sources of the printed details."
