1831-1838. vol. 1: early Aug 1831; vol. 2: Oct 1832; vol. 3: 8-15 Nov 1834;┬╣vol. 4(1): 1837; vol. 4(2): 8 Mar-8 Apr 1838


Often cited as "A General System of Gardening and Botany," from the┬╣original title. Volume 4 has 908 pages, and the page break between vol. 4(1) and 4(2) is not known. Sprague (Bull. Misc. Inform. Kew 1925: 312. 1925) mentioned: Vol. iv. (1837). Reviewed in Loud. Gard. Mag., Aug. 1838, xiv. 380. The original title-page is dated 1837, while the one issued along with the publisher's "Advertisement" (which is dated February, 1838) bears the date 1838. As the volume was apparently published in parts (vide Loud. Gard. Mag., April 1835, xi. 194), it is probable that the greater portion of it appeared in 1837, and perhaps only the last part in the beginning of 1838.
