Henri-Louis Duhamel du Monceau (20 July 1700, Paris – 13 August 1782, Paris), was a French physician, naval engineer, and botanist.
His fondness for concrete problems, experimentation, and popularization made him one of the forerunners of modern agronomy and silviculture.
We offer for sale one of his reference works (here's just the first volume), a work that has become a classic, a landmark in the field.
The volume contains also 28 boards/sheets, very beautiful realized, which offers a special value for this work.
The book offered here is in good condition, surprisingly clean for its over 230 years old. The pages have a bright white appearance, with very few spots here and there. In a very rare vintage/epoch binding, despite its wear.
Complete inside, without underlining and additions in the text.
A very rare and valuable book, with a low reserve price.
