About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for PHYTOLOGIA; OR THE PHILOSOPHY OF AGRICULTURE AND GARDENING. WITH THE THEORY OF DRAINING MORASSES AND WITH AN IMPROVED CONSTRUCTION OF THE DRILL PLOUGH. by Darwin Erasmus.

Description:

First Edition. With 12 copper plates, two of which are folding. 4to, in the original boards, scarce thus and uncut. Some time ago rebacked in closely matching material, printed paper label on spine. A fine copy, and highly uncommon in the original boards, some slight staining to the plates. FIRST EDITION OF THIS VERY IMPORTANT TREATISE ON BOTANY, AND ITS APPLICATION TO AGRICULTURE AND GARDENING by one of the key thinkers of the Midlands Enlightenment. Darwin formed the Lichfield Botanical Society (despite the name, composed of only three men, Erasmus Darwin, Sir Brooke Boothby and Mr John Jackson, proctor of Lichfield Cathedral to translate the works of the Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus from Latin into English. This led to further works on botany and its practical application in agriculture. PHYTOLOGIA is the author's third major work. In addition to dealing with core issues such as using manures for nutrition, the development of irrigation, drainage, ploughing and common plant diseases, it most importantly applied to plants, the discussion of biological evolution which Darwin had begun in Zoonomia. This work also proposes important concepts that are now being promoted in modern "organic" farming, such as using the natural enemies of pests rather than poisons to control the environment. An example promulgated was the encouragement of the growth of bird populations in order to control harmful insects. Bookseller Inventory #
