English gardener and historian, Eleanour Sinclair Rohde (1885-1950) describes William Lawson’s A New Orchard and Garden as a classic of ‘English garden literature’. Lawson’s treatise advises on all facets of orchard development, care and management, with especial reference to his own experience gardening in the north of England. Lawson (c. 1553-1635), a Protestant priest, who lived in Yorkshire, also wrote The Country House-Wife’s Garden (published with New Orchard and Garden in 1618) – a gardening volume exclusively for women. This Cresset Press edition is copy 56 of 650.
