About this Item

A very nice copy without any flaws. Salads and herbs are so good for health and form an important part of the diet. It is fascinating that Joh Evelyn wrote this scholarly work on salads in 1699. When Madeline Masson happened on a copy of Evelyn's ACETARIA she was immediately excited by its possibilities. The ACTARIA is presented in its original form on the left hand pages. On the right side Masson has substantiated the herbs, salads and vegetables under the heading Provenance. Also included is a brief biography of Sir John Evely. Pen drawings, water colour illustrations, and calligraphy by Joan Wolfenden. Size: 8" x 9" 96 Pgs. Bookseller Inventory # 39800
