The first edition was published in 1760. Musset-Pathay, in his Bibliographie Agronomique, notes that L'Agronome "est très-complète, et contient toutes les connaissances nécessaires pour gouverner avantageusement les biens de la campagne, d'après la pratique des agronomes les plus célèbres" (no. 32, referring to the first edition). Arranged alphabetically, the work contains many recipes as well as information on what was then a rapidly developing rural economy. A handsome copy in tree-calf and with spines richly gilt. This edition is not in OCLC. Bookseller Inventory #
