Closed tear to one leaf (with very minimal loss). A very nice clean copy. Rare, this edition not in OCLC; which lists just a Paris 1741 edition with this title; Querard 3, col. 345; See Henrey, volume 1, p. 186; see Bitting p. 48 (who lists a 1684 edition and indicates that the first edition was issued in 1650, but that it has never been seen). This book, under the title: "Le Jardinier Francois" was written by Bonnefons and published in Paris in 1651. It was popular enough that a 4th edition was issued in 1654. It was translated by John Evelyn in 1658, being his first published work on horticulture. Evelyn notes that this book was "the first and best of that kind that introduced the use of the olitorie (ie kitchen) garden to any purpose"[Henrey Vol. 1, p. 186]. Bitting: "The work is divided into three parts: the first treats of the soil; the second treats fruits and vegetables; the third is about the manner of conserving fruits in their natural state, dry, with salt and vinegar, sweet wine, cider, and honey, liquid with sugar, dry and pastes, conserves of flowers and massepains." Nicolas De Bonnefons was valet de chambre du Roi.
