Sm. folio, woodcuts; half calf
"Between the first appearance of Gerard's Herbal and the second edition, Parkinson had published his Paradisi in Sole Paradisus Terrestris, the most popular gardening work of this period.
"The title of the book is a play upon his name: Park-in-Sun's Earthly Paradise, and the quaintness, freshness, and originality of the title is characteristic of the whole book. Parkinson has the power of inspiring his readers with a love of flowers and a feeling for their beauty, and still, after a lapse of centuries, no gardener could fail to be refreshed and stimulated in his art by a perusal of the Earthly Paradise.
"The feeling that this book might inspire in children is very prettily shown in Mary's Meadow by Juliana Horatia Ewing."-The Hon. Alicia Amherst. 163 PARKINSON. THEATRUM BOTANICVM: The Theater of Plants.
