Warner's book comes from a gentler time when publishing was still a profession for gentlefolk and even casual books of essays were both written and read. Originally published in 1870, it is the source of America's best-known proverb about public life: 'Politics makes strange bedfellows.' In it Warner also famously observed that a gardener should have an iron back with a hinge in it. A bit pricey at $69 for the reprint, but something your library should be urged to acquire if its gardening section is to be complete -- assuming it hasn't still got this keeper in a good stout archival binding from having bought it in your great-grandmother's day.Was this review helpful?
