Hill, Thomas

b. ca. 1528.

The Gardeners Labyrinth, or, A New Art of Gardening: Wherein is Laid Down New and Rare Inventions and Secrets of Gardening not Heretofore Known: For Sowing, Planting, and Setting All Manner of Roots, Herbs, and Flowers, Both for the Use of the Kitchen Garden and a Garden of Pleasure.

Collected from the best approved authors, besides forty years experience in the art of gardning, by D.M. And now newly corrected and inlarged. Milford, Conn: Herb Lovers Book Club, 1939. "Reprinted for the first time since the edition dated 1652, from the copy now owned by Mrs. Rosetta E. Clarkson."--t.p. verso. Originally published: London: Printed by Jane Bell, 1652. Part 1 only; with a new foreword.

This is a modern reprinting of Hill's original works (see PAT-56), but it lacks the second part on the herbs and vegetables.  It also lacks some of the woodcuts showing gardeners at work.

Subjects: Gardening; Vegetable gardening; Maze gardens; Knot gardens.
