"La Quintinie was one of the great French agriculturists of the 17th century. He was also interested in horticulture and gardens, and Louis XIV felt his work was so important that he created for him the post of Directeur Général des Potagers Royaux. Though La Quintinie held this post with distinction for forty years, his modesty was such that he published nothing of his own during his lifetime. This was rectified shortly after his death when the Instructions Pour les Jardins Fruitiers et Potagers was brought out in 1690. It was so practical and filled such a need that it went into many editions " (Hunt). Francais 1,400 gr. Bookseller Inventory # 3271AB

Vol 1 : manques sur les coiffes, les deux pièces de titre ; usures marquées sur les coins des plats ainsi que pour le tome 2. Complet des 13 planches. Jean de la Quintinye (1626 - 1688). Il exerça la profession d’avocat à Paris avec beaucoup de talent. Le président de la Chambre des comptes lui confia alors l’éducation de son fils. De la Quintinye occupe ses loisirs à observer les plantes du jardin de la maison de Tambonneau où il est employé et c’est en accompagnant son élève en Italie que nait sa vocation d’horticulteur. De retour à Paris son employeur lui abandonne la direction de son jardin. Les personnalités de l’époque qui fréquentaient le Tambonneau lui demandèrent alors d’en établir de semblable sur leurs domaines. Il créa ainsi les portagers-fruitiers de Chantilly pour le Grand Condé, pour Fouquet à Vaux le Vicomte, pour le duc de Montausier à Rambouiller et pour Colbert à Seaux. C’est sur la proposition de ce dernier que La Quintinye entra au service de Louis XIV qui le chargea de la direction des ses jardins fruitiers et potagers. En 1678 il commença son oeuvre principale, le potager du roi. Les travaux portant sur près de huit hectares, durèrent 5 années. Il a subsisté et est occupé de nos jours par l’Ecole Nationale d’horticulture de Versailles. La quintinye est considéré comme le père de la culture forcée (il servait des asperges en décembre, des laitues en janvier.) ce qui à l’époque était considéré comme un tour de force. Il a également beaucoup contribué à la propagation de la culture en espalier et contre-espaliers. La première édition de cet ouvrage date de 1690, chez Barbin.G.A.Pritzel 2394. Livres.

Book Condition: Bon. 2 vol., [8]-16-32-[8]-666-[3] Paris, chez Michel-Etienne David, 1716, in-4, 2 vol, [8]-16-32-[8]-666-[3] + [12]-562-[30] pp, 13 pl. gravées sur cuivre, dont 2 depliantes, veau havane de l'époque, dos à nerfs et fleuronnés, pièces de titre grenat, tomaisons dorées, Bandeaux finement gravés, lettrines et culs-de-lampe. Quelques figures dans le texte. Cet ouvrage rassemble les réflexions et l'expérience de Jean-Baptiste de la Quintinie (1626-1688), célèbre jardinier et agronome français, qui abandonna la profession d'avocat pour se consacrer au jardinage. Il s'occupa des jardins de grands personnages de l'époque (Nicolas Fouquet, le prince de Condé, le duc de Montausier, Colbert). En 1670 Louis XIV le chargea de la direction de ses jardins fruitiers et potagers. Ensuite, pour cinq années, il se consacra à la création du nouveau potager du roi. On doit à ce jardinier du Grand siècle d'avoir enrichi l'horticulture "des apports de la physiologie végétale, de la botanique et des premiers rudiments de la chimie" (Martine Constans, Jardiner à Paris au temps des rois, 2003). Il contribua également à la distinction entre les divers métiers spécialisés dans la création de jardin : jardiniers, fleuristes, botaniste, maréchais, etc. Épidermures légères, accroc à un mors, coins usés, infime trou de ver en tête d'un dos. Rousseurs très légères. Néanmoins bon exemplaire. Bookseller Inventory # 70255

Item Description: London: for Matthew Gillyflower, 1693., 1693. 2 volumes in one. Folio (12 2/8 x 8 inches). Title-page printed in red and black (some minor marginal worming to later text leaves). Engraved frontispiece portrait of the author, and 11 plates, including two folding, 9 engraved vignette head-pieces, and small wood-engravings in the text. Modern brown paneled calf antique. Provenance: with the ownership inscription "Planche, Lyon" date 1861 at the head of the title-page. First edition in English of the Quintinye's "Compleat Gard'ner" translated by the celebrated John Evelyn: founding member of the Royal Society, English writer, diarist, and gardener. The first appearance in print of Quintinye's "Treatise of Orange-trees". La Quintinye was director of the fruit and kitchen gardens of the royal households from 1670 to 1688, and is celebrated as the man who created the potager for Louis XIV. La Quintinye originally trained as a lawyer, ".progressed to the Paris law courts and eventually became tutor to the son of the president of the Cour des Comptes, the powerful general accounting office. In that capacity he visited Italy, where he was enthralled by the gardens. On his return, de La Quintinye commandeered his employer's garden for experiments. When, in the early 1660's, Louis XIV decided to turn his father's hunting box at Versailles into a palace, he engaged the leading professionals of the day: the architect Louis Le Vau, the painter Charles Le Brun and the garden designer Andre Le Notre. He also hired de La Quintinye to improve and expand Louis XIII's potager. ("Potager". originally referring to the maker of the vegetable potages, or soups, that were the mainstay of medieval peasant cooking, it had, by the 16th century, been extended to mean the gardens where the soup makings grew.). As the time approached for the court to install itself definitively at Versailles, it became apparent that Louis XIII's kitchen garden of fewer than 10 acres, situated southeast of the chateau, was inadequate. So, in 1677, de La Quintinye undertook to create what is probably history's most ambitious kitchen garden-cum-orchard. Like all of Versailles, the new potager was intended as a showplace. De La Quintinye wrote that it had been positioned "convenient for walks and the King's satisfaction" (New York Times, September 11, 1994). Quintinye was ennobled by the King in 1687.

Popular garden book (and probably the most influential book in the history of pomology) by the leading French gardener of the seventeenth century. For more than 20 years, beginning in 1665, La Quintinie worked as gardener to Louis XIV, rising steadily with ever-expanding titles. The potager at Versailles, constructed from 1677 to 1683, is the most famous of the fruit and kitchen gardens he oversaw in all the royal houses to meet the needs of the court: asparagus in December and strawberries in April, as well as the King's favorite figs. This book, published posthumously by La Quintinie's son Michel, introduced his methods to a wide audience. Later editions, such as our copy, added to the directions for pruning and thinning out buds sections on melons and flowers, as well as advice on dealing with orange tress and La Quintinie's reflection on agriculture. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

First (and only unabridged) English Edition, among the last of Evelyn's major publications (Keynes), of this immensely popular garden book (and probably the most influential book in the history of pomology) by the leading French gardener of the seventeenth century. Originally published, in Paris, in 1690. For more than 20 years, beginning in 1665, La Quintinie worked as gardener to Louis XIV, rising steadily with ever-expanding titles. The potager at Versailles, constructed from 1677 to 1683, is the most famous of the fruit and kitchen gardens he oversaw to meet the needs of the court: asparagus in December and strawberries in April, as well as the King's favorite figs. Sometime in the late 1660's, La Quintinie visited England, where he met John Evelyn (and visited his garden at Sayes Court, Deptford), whose translation introduced La Quintinie's methods to a wide audience.

Item Description: Claude Barbin, Paris, 1690. 2 volumes, 4to. (10 x 7 1/4 inches). [viii], 522, [2]; 566, [2] pages. Engraved headpieces. Engraved portrait and thirteen engraved plates (two folding). Contemporary speckled calf, spine gilt with raised bands in six compartments, red morocco lettering pieces, marbled endpapers Lovely set of the first edition of the most important work by "the leading French gardener of the seventeenth century" (Raphael). "La Quintinye was one of the Great French agriculturists of the 17th century. He was also interested in horticulture and gardens, and Louis XIV felt his work was so important, that he created for him the post of Directeur General des Portagers Royaux. Though La Quintinye held this post with distinction for forty years, his modesty was such that he published nothing of his own during his lifetime. This was rectified shortly after his death when the Instructions pour le Jardins Fruitiers et Postagers was brought out in 1690. It was so practical and filled such a need that it went into many editions" (Hunt). John Evelyn would translate the work into English, first published in 1693 under the title The Compleat Gard'ner . While Amsterdam piracies and later editions are common, the present first edition is scarce. Hunt I: 388 (English edition); Brunet III:p.838; Raphael, Oak Spring Pomona I.

Un portrait de l'auteur en frontispice, 13 planches dont une sur double page et une repliée, et de jolis bandeaux historiés illustrent l'ouvrage Cet ouvrage rassemble les réflexions et l'expérience de Jean-Baptiste de la Quintinye (1626-1688), célèbre jardinier et agronome français, qui abandonna la profession d'avocat pour se consacrer à l'art des jardins. Il s'occupa de ceux des grands personnages de l'époque (Nicolas Fouquet, le prince de Condé, le duc de Montausier, Colbert).

Sur les deux pages de titres, ex-libris du temps d'un prénommé "Regnault", qui a laisse une longue note manuscrite à la fin du premier tome où il donne sa "Méthode" pour "faire le goudron à couvrir greffes en fente et les greffes branches coupées".
