Notes

First edition thus. A 24-page descriptive catalogue was printed in 1863. By 1867 William Chamberlain Strong was a well-established nurseryman and an authoritative author on these topics. His Culture of the Grape had been published the previous year, and was considered "a valuable manual" written by the "prophet" of agriculture and chemistry (The New-York Independent, 1866); Gabler called it a "well-researched contribution" to contemporary viticulture literature. Strong distinguishes between foreign and native grapes, which he grew in a glass-covered grapery of 18,000 square feet at Nonantum Hill.
