11th edition. First Dublin edition with small embossed stamp of F H Cripps Day 1906 to head of title and his signature on the Free end paper. 77pp, 8vo. Limp calf, gilt, a little worn, rebacked. Henry 549, Harris 117. This treatise was conceived as a response to the landscape gardening style of Capability Brown. It was first published in 1772 both in English and French and was especially influential on the Continent. Its publication invoked a response of a satiric and heroic epistle by Mason which is included here. Note in hand writing of Cripps Day listing publications by the same author and also on the front paste down stamp of the Rohamsted Experimental Station.
