This is a gorgeous Child's seed catalog from the year 1898, out of Floral Park, New York. The 160 page book is filled with detailed black and white illustrations of plants, flowers, as well as vegetable and fruit crops. There are also 10 colored lithographic pages within the catalog. Farmers and gardeners would pick what plants they wanted to grow and place an order for the seeds through the catalog.
This piece is in fair to good condition for its age. The front and back covers and spine are most affected. The spine has weathered quite a bit and both covers have the expected scratches, folds and small tears. The front cover and a few of the opening pages are separating and should be handled carefully. The inside of the magazine is clean, legible and virtually without damage. We have done our best to capture the damage in our pictures.
