Front cover is brown leather decorated with a tree motif. Centred at the top of the image is the title, “The Evergreen” in capital letters. A large tree and its branches take up the majority of the cover. On the center bottom left of the cover, beside the trunk of the tree, it reads, “published in EDINBURGH by Patrick Geddes Colleagues at the Lawnmarket…” The text continues on the right side of the trunk. It reads, “And also in LONDON by T. Fisher Unwin Paternoster Square E. C.” by Patrick Geddes & Colleagues at the Lawnmarket of Edinburgh.” The roots of the tree extend below this text to the bottom of the frame of the image. Intertwined with the roots there are flowers. On the bottom center of the cover, there is a decorative pattern of four swirls. The brown leather cover is embossed in muted colours of green and red-ish brown. Image is vertically displayed.
