Gardens of the past

Gardening in South Texas is a look at the days when people did what it took to keep the soil acid and bombed the bejoobers out of any pests. At least one common flower is called by a hurtful name. This book, originating with the San Antonio garden club and published by Naylor, went through several editions, under two titles. The cover is handsome and so is the book design in general, including the typography. Apparently Naylor declared bankruptcy somtime in the 'seventies (1977?). Thank you, Austin Public Library, for not (yet) deacessioning this book.
