Joseph Paxton, bestrode the worlds of horticulture, urban planning, and architecture like colossus. This was the indispensable man, the self-taught polymath and can-do pragmatist who had a solution to every large-scale logistical problem, the genius whom an impossibly overworked Charles Dickens dubbed " The Busiest Man in England". The d/w has been covered in plastic by the previous owner, and there is an owners label on the ffep. A good clean and tight copy.
