About this Item

Subtitled "L'art d'embellir les paysages," this gardening-themed poem includes praise of the virtues of the relaxed, relatively "natural" jardin anglais. Les jardins, Delille's most successful work, was originally published in 1782 with many subsequent editions appearing both in French and English; the present example is a nicely bound copy of the expanded version, illustrated with four engraved plates by Monciau after Beno?t-Louis Prevost and other artists. Binding: Contemporary treed calf. Spine with gilt-stamped red leather title label, gilt-stamped compartment lines, and floral devices within compartments. . 12mo (13.5 cm, 5.25"). [6], xxxv, [1], 216 pp.; 4 plts. Brunet, II, 576. Binding somewhat rubbed and starting to crack at joints, though very firm; some onetime water exposure visible on front cover (a not entirely unattractive effect). Pages with a bit of very minor spotting, and some offsetting from plates. An attractive copy of a pretty book. Bookseller Inventory # 8295
