1 Steuart, Sir Henry, Bart. The Planter's Guide; the Planter's Guide; Or, a Practical Essay on the Best Method of Giving Immediate Effect to Wood... with Observations on General Planting, and the Improvement of Real Lanscape. Originally Intended for the Climate of Scotland.
New York G. Thorburn and Sons 1832 First American Edition Hardcover 
At some point, long ago, this copy has had some professional restoration but I am not sure how much. The original leather spine containing a black rectangular box with a gilt lettered title has been laid down on a cloth binding with reinforcement at top and bottom of spine. The endpapers appear to be original and the book is square with a secure binding. I think newer cloth covers have been placed over an original quarterbound leather binding, though the leather spine was preserved. There is a light musty odor from storage but overall this is a solid copy. Some wear to edges and corners. See scan. Overall this copy is G+. ; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 422 pages; When this planter's guide was published in the US, planters in the South still owned slaves. 
Price: 100.00 USD
