In November of 2019 Ohio University Press offered me a contract for my new book All about Flowers: James Vick’s Nineteeth Century Seed Company.
So you can see that at the moment I am busy with work related to the release of this book.
Ohio assures me the book will be out this Fall.
Here is Vick’s seed catalog from 1873. Beautiful chromolithography just like Pabst used as well. [below]
One link to the Pabst book and this garden history book on James Vick is that the time period is the same, late Victorian. Also the setting is the same, America at that time.
