Catalogue Note

This second issue of the third edition is considered the most complete and "best edition" (Howes) of Carver's account. It includes a biographical sketch of the author by Dr. J.C. Lettsom (and an ALS from him is tipped into the present copy). The  index and hand-colored tobacco plant plate were unique to this edition.
