"Second edition" of this popular work, after the first of 1802. The American editions listed in Sabin (who does not list the present edition) and the NUC contain additional material by William Cobbett, apparently not included in any London editions. The NUC lists several locations for the London and American editions of 1802, but only two locations (NIC, CtY) for the present edition. The handsome engraved plates illustrate methods of and tools used in pruning, grafting and training. Forsyth was "Gardener to his Majesty at Kensington and St. James's." SABIN 25155 (ref).
