About this Item

Second issue of first Hague edition, which was pirated from 1709 Paris edition. 4to (24.7 x 19.6 cm). Contemporary quarter calf with separate tooled label, gilt, on marble boards. Title printed in red and black, and 38 large double-page engraved plates three of which are signed by J. Lamsvelt one of the best Dutch engravers of this period. Collation: [16] 293 [1-errata] [10-Table des Matieres with Approbation dated 15 December 1708, signed Havart]. There are 38 folding plates. Text and plates have varying degrees of dusting, staining/spotting and creasing (mainly near gutter and not generally affecting text or plate areas). Plate opposite p.146 has verso paper overlay repair. This is the first of three plates that should have been inserted opposite p.120. The repair is for tear outside plate mark for plate. Last plate has small tear near bottom of one fold repaired on verso with translucent archival tape. This is the second Hague edition and the first to use the letters L. S. A. I. D. A. as the author, which only occurred in the third French edition to give authorship to Dezallier d'Argenville. According to Johnston (Cleveland) "the initials were identified by F.M.G. Gardiner as standing for Le Sieur Antoine Joseph Dezallier d'Argenville." This is an enlarged edition with an additional 85 text pages and 6 more engraved plates. The works of Dezallier follows the gardening practice of "André Le Nôtre who designed or redesigned gardens of Versailles, The Tuileries and Fontaniebleau." (Johnston) The text and plates provide detail information on landscape transformation for development of gardens, formation of mazes, parterres and other garden structures. This classic work was first published in 1709 during the reign of Louis XIV and 9 years after the death of André Le Nôtre. (Hunt 421; Cleveland, 329). Bookseller Inventory # 0000103
