One of our finest writers on one of her greatest loves. Jamaica Kincaid's first garden in Vermont was a plot in the middle of her front lawn. There, to the consternation of more experienced friends, she planted only seeds of the flowers she liked best. In My Garden (Book) she gathers all she loves about gardening and plants, and examines it generously, passionately, and with sharp, idiosyncratic discrimination. Kincaid's affections are matched in intensity only by her dislikes. She loves spring and summer but cannot bring herself to love winter, for it hides the garden. She adores the rhododendron Jane Grant, and appreciates ordinary Blue Lake string beans, but abhors the Asiatic lily. The sources of her inspiration -- seed catalogues, the gardener Gertrude Jekyll, gardens like Monet's at Giverny -- are subjected to intense scrutiny. She also examines the idea of the garden on Antigua, where she grew up. My Garden (Book) is an intimate, playful, and penetrating book on gardens, the plants that fill them, and the persons who tend them.

Cort Sinnes knows more about gardening than just about anybody with a green thumb. The one thing he knows best of all, though, is just how magical a green space can be. In My Garden is Sinnes's simple but elegant tribute to gardening. Like the best writers of any genre, he distills his topic to its essence, in the process sharing the countless layers of it all.In My Garden, also illustrated by the author, tells the simple story of Sinnes and his two dogs-once individually known as Scout and Spot, but now both going by "Scott"-as they live and relish life in their garden. That such a slim volume can capture a philosophy of gardening, relationships, purpose, and life shows that Sinnes's talents reach far beyond growing and cultivating plants. "I like weeds because they are so obvious and simple. They just sit there waiting to be pulled." "The hoe is a useful tool. Any toxins-real or imagined-drain easily through the handle and into the soil, where they quietly disappear." "The hammock is a perfect invention."Highlighted by simple, watercolor sketches, the wisdom in this book will appeal to gardeners, those looking for a gardening gift, and anyone with an eye for simple living relished to its fullest. Sinnes plants, tends, and waters this story until it blossoms in a golden splash of the setting sun. Delightful!

‘Ruchira Mukerjee’s Toad in my Garden is the story of two women, Megha and Damyanti, one young and the other middle-aged, whose domestic lives are irrevocably shaken by the appearance of Oxford-educated Ashwin. One of the novel’s strong points is its driving narrative, another is its choice of the small-town setting of Allahabad, in north India, instead of the oft-used metropolitan map. Mukerjee paints the town’s exterior and interior characteristics with vividness and subtlety. The novel is psychologically acute and rich in detail and atmosphere . . . With this novel Ruchira Mukerjee makes a confident start to what one hopes will be a long career’ Sudeep Sen, Guardian ‘Mukerjee pinpoints the historical moment of her story exactly, showing us Indian responses to such events as the publication of The Female Eunuch. Her sense of the importance of crowds in Indian life is also acute . . . Mukerjee handles some tricky subject matter with an admirable lightness of touch, and her startling ending is well worth the wait’ Andrew Biswell, Daily Telegraph

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ... (6) Columns for Discount on Purchases and Discount on Notes on the same side of the Cash Book; (c) Columns for Discount on Sales and Cash Sales on the debit side of the Cash Book; (d) Departmental columns in the Sales Book and in the Purchase Book. Controlling Accounts.--The addition of special columns in books of original entry makes possible the keeping of Controlling Accounts. The most common examples of such accounts are Accounts Receivable account and Accounts Payable account. These summary accounts, respectively, displace individual customers' and creditors' accounts in the Ledger. The customers' accounts are then segregated in another book called the Sales Ledger or Customers' Ledger, while the creditors' accounts are kept in the Purchase or Creditors' Ledger. The original Ledger, now much reduced in size, is called the General Ledger. The Trial Balance now refers to the accounts in the General Ledger. It is evident that the task of taking a Trial Balance is greatly simplified because so many fewer accounts are involved. A Schedule of Accounts Receivable is then prepared, consisting of the balances found in the Sales Ledger, and its total must agree with the balance of the Accounts Receivable account shown in the Trial Balance. A similar Schedule of Accounts Payable, made up of all the balances in the Purchase Ledger, is prepared, and it must agree with the balance of the Accounts Payable account of the General Ledger." The Balance Sheet.--In the more elementary part of the text, the student learned how to prepare a Statement of Assets and Liabilities for the purpose of disclosing the net capital of an enterprise. In the present chapter he was shown how to prepare a similar statement, the Balance Sheet. For all practical...

Christopher Lloyd has been writing a weekly column in Country Life since 1963 and, until now, this wealth of gardern literature has been denied to a wider public. There are many garden writers, but few whose work can be considered to have the status of literature. There is only one who has achieved this at the same time as delivering horticultural information which enlightens even the most erudite of plantsmen, and that is Christopher Lloyd. His prose is exciting; his knowledge is vast; his ideas are provocative, and what is the true test of a writer who has transcended his medium, he makes you laugh out loud. In this selection from the storehouse of Christopher Lloyd's prose it will be apparent to what a high degree he has influenced gardening in our times. The book will capture the essence of Christopher Lloyd and of his garden at Great Dixter.
