Description

Very Scarce

A collection of miscellaneous writings by John Evelyn, the well known writer gardener and diarist. Contemporary with Samuel Pepys, Evelyn's diary have comparatively fallen out of favour, and yet they offer a great insight into the sociopolitical climate of the 17th century, and comments on the notable incidents of the century. This particular volume features Evelyn's miscellaneous writings. With additional material and notes by the notable librarian and collector William Upcott. Collated complete with 4 plates. One of which is a facsimile of a letter sent by Evelyn to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Thomas Tennison.
