Description:

Octavo. (12), 368, (2)pp. The second German edition of Dézallier d'Argenville's La Théorie et la Pratique du Jardinage, a classic work on gardening and landscape architecture. Illustrated throughout with thirty-nine copper engravings, including an ornate frontispiece. Many of the illustrations are fold-out plates showing the design and layout of lavish, formal pleasure gardens, complete with fountains and pools. Other plates emphasize the architectural aspects of the gardens, demonstrating how to properly grade the earth, create terraces, and construct pergolas. One image is hand-colored, likely by the book's owner. This influential guide was written and published anonymously in 1709 by d'Argenville, a French courtier, naturalist, and gardening connoisseur, in collaboration with the architect and garden designer Alexandre Le Blond. Le Blond illustrated the work and was credited as the author in the third edition. Translated from the original French by Franz Anton Danreiter, who had a personal interest in the subject; he was appointed Chief Inspector of Gardens by Prince Leopold of Salzburg, to whom the volume is dedicated. This translation is cited as a key source for the eighteenth-century dissemination of formal French garden design throughout German-speaking Europe. Expertly rebacked, else fine in contemporary mottled calf. (Berlin Cat. 3464). Bookseller Inventory #
