Description


This is the fourth instalment of the "Ditchfield's Little Wonder Book" series, "Stocking the Garden Pond". It deals chiefly with adding, fostering, and maintaining aquatic life in a garden pond, with helpful advice and diagrams throughout. This handy volume will be of utility to existing and prospective pond owners alike, and it would make for a great addition to collections of gardening literature. Contents include: "Introduction", "Plant Pockets", "Preparing the Compost", "True Aquatic Plants", "Surfacing Plants", "Marginal Bog Plants", "Floating Plants", "Indigenous Fish", "Cultivated Varieties", "Feeding Pond Fish", "Breeding Gold Fish", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction.

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye. The book offers valuable tips on how to avoid common mistakes often experienced by new collectors drawn from the author's personal experiences as a collector and fine art dealer.
