A Country Garden
Armitage, Ethel
Country Life London 1936 
22.5cm Hardcover I have seen copies in excess of two hundred pounds so this is a great buy, intact dj with just a few nicks to bottom. Book has a collection of charming lineart by John Farleigh (24 in all incl violets, magnolias, cabbages & roses) The contents represent a beautiful journal of a year in a gardener's life in pre-war Britain. Armitage is also the author of "Garden & hedgerow" "Flower and Leaf" . Armitage must have been a force to be reckoned with - this extract focuses on the German's ideals of planting under the Nazis - quote - Ethel Armitage, in her book A County Garden, published just before World War Two, wrote of ground elder as 'a veritable Hun, overrun-ning any place it can get near ... [it] is no true Briton at all, having begun its career here as an undesirable alien'." The plant in the garden, the ground elder, is a microcosm of the threat of invasion by Nazi Germany, so that Armitage's garden is a metonym for Britain itself. . . . well indeed much of Britain's landscape & garden history is amazing so good for her to adopt the Churchillian stance. A really great floraholic's addition for their library.  Excellent-very Good
