This is a gorgeous Child's seed catalog from the year 1895, out of Floral Park, New York. The 130 page book is filled with detailed black and white illustrations of plants, flowers, as well as vegetable and fruit crops. There are also six colored, lithographic pages throughout. 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 condition for its age because of the external damage to the covers and spine. The front and back covers have quite a bit of weathering to the edges and corners. Both covers have tears in their upper portions. There is one page torn out of the book, but still with it and a page with a chunk torn out of the top. The spine has partially deteriorated, although the piece remains intact. The internal pages are clean, legible and virtually without damage, with minimal damage to the outer edges. We have done our best to capture the damage in our pictures.
